Hi everyone. Today for the first time in 2 years I woke up to a blanket of snow! I was so excited! Yes, we’ve had snow on the mountains during Winter but today it was snowing and it was like feathers falling from heaven!
Snow is one of my favourite things. The world is transformed into an immaculate wonderland and there’s magic in the air when it snows.
Unfortunately it has all but melted – the joys of living beside the Atlantic ocean! So I would like to share some pictures from the Big Freeze a few years ago. I hope you like them ♡
Early morning sunlight piercing through the mist. Snow makes everything so peaceful.
We made this snowman and we called him Murray after the band manager in Flight of the Conchords! He was 6 foot tall and in this picture he seems to have made a little friend!
This is a picture of a pier and in the background is a frozen solid river! Where I live we rarely get weather like this, so it was amazing to be able to walk on a river! Far in the distance (on the right) is Ben Bulben mountain, made famous by the poet W.B. Yeats.
This is a close-up of that mountain – Ben Bulben. This picture was taken only a few days before the previous picture. You can clearly see the river. There was a small bit of ice on the river that day and everyday it grew and grew until it completely covered the entire river and lake!
I love this photo. It reminds me of an old Victorian Christmas card I once saw, where there was a small injection of colour in a snowy landscape.
This was a fascinating picture. I had never seen anything like it in my life. These are brambles completely covered in snow crystals. Up close you could see the crystal structure. (I have since found out they are called Fernlike Stellar Dendrites!)
I hope you like my snowy pictures. I will never forget the Big Freeze and the joys of walking through Narnia! ♡
