Photo gallery

Sunday 20th January 2013

We will soon be off to the The Three Crowns for Sunday lunch, but I have added a number of photographs taken in this last week which gives an idea of how severe some of the weather has been and then how wonderful it looks after everything settles down

Horizontal snow and lots of it
Essentials to be taken care of - he would prefer his own inside toilet
It's almost like something you would see in an antarctic documentary
Much more and we might disappear
Putting up with it
Much better after the wind has gone

Banjo really has enjoyed being able to frolic around in the snow

There is an up side to all of this - at least the beer is cold

Not quite the winter wonderland

Picture postcard perfect

With the local wildlife
Interacting with the locals
Mother and child reunion
Life on the canals

Holed up for winter

Time to reflect upon it all

For those of us from warmer climes, the sight and experience of snow is such a child-like adventure that it takes a little time to remember that as beautiful and scenic as all of this is, there are many thousands of people who find it far from that and the conditions make it difficult for a great many in the community.

We will experience this for some winters to come before we must return to our home, but we will remember these experiences - the sights, the sounds, the feel of it all
