SNOW. (29/11/15)

It’s snowing quite hard this morning. The first real snow of the winter.

See the pretty snowfakes
Falling from the sky;
On the wall and housetops
Soft and thick they lie.
On the window ledges,
On the branches bare;
Now how fast they gather,
Filling all the air.
Look into the garden,
Where the grass was green;
Covered by the snowflakes,
Not a blade is seen.
Now the bare black bushes
All look soft and white,
Every twig is laden,
What a pretty sight!

Hopefully the sun will shine later and I’ll be able to see far enough for a landscape picture or two.

  1. What a transformation to the landscape. I thought it was a beautiful area pre-snow. Stay warm I've heard you got the white stuff falling all day.

  2. I didn't realise that rough tough sea captains with phallic camera lenses and an interest in all things technological could write such nice little poems about snowflakes!

  4. It's nice to catch whilst it is still on the branches. We are still snowless here with nothing in the 14 day forecast. That doesn't bother me too much, but the thought of a possible green Christmas makes me squirm a bit.

  8. I guess the clue is in the word snowFAKES, Adrian!, You really have been busy in Photoshop to get those effects. I bet you're basking in beautiful sunshine in reality! ;-}

  15. Your last shot is a winner. I like the gray tones you picked up. I assume it's your poem? You have another skill in your tool box

  17. Beautiful captures of the freshly fallen snow. I hope you'll be able to find Molly and Alf if they scamper off through it ;) Hope you get more since you love it so much. Nothing here yet, except on the mountain tops.

  18. Very Christmassy scenes. I think I will have no difficulty waiting until the snow arrives this far south.

  21. Snow snow, glorious snow. It's 12 ℃ here at 2230 today (Tuesday) and snow seems a long long way away. But apparently not. I am just totally fed up of rain, rain, inglorious rain.

    1. Graham, it has been very wet and more than a touch depressing here.
