Snow 2013 IV
The valley was unbelievably beautiful covered in snow & morning mist

A couple of dog walkers but otherwise untouched. So worth getting out of bed for.
Snow 2013 VI
I've never shot a panorama before... but I'm so pleased with how this turned out! I love how every roof is covered with snow.

Yes, more snow pictures (I'm not sorry, not even a little bit).  Most of these were taken Monday morning, I woke up a bit earlier than usual, got up to put the kettle on and pulled the blind as normal. It was snowing when I went to bed & I was expecting a bit to have settled overnight but it must have snowed hard - all I could see was white & the poor tree in front of my window looked ready to snap! The best part? Hardly anyone had been up & about on our street so the snow was virtually untouched. I grabbed my camera, chucked some clothes on and headed straight out - I was determined to photograph the park & out over the valley before the snow got 'ruined'. I even left my tea (this is very rare). It was freezing, but gorgeous & so, so worth dragging my butt out of bed for.

I've spent the rest of this week revising for the exam I sat on Thursday (all over now, so happy!) and getting ready for a pretty intense week next week (a module in a week? Lets do it). We celebrated the end of exams with wedges & a pint in the union, then a movie & drinks in the evening. My kinda night. I think I've eaten soup for dinner pretty much every single day & tonight I discovered the liquid awesome that is rice-milk hot chocolate. Its unbelievable. Seriously. Tonight looked a a bit like wine, candles, Bon Iver, sorting through pictures, watching more snow fall & chatting to my brother on the phone. All good stuff.

Have a good weekend folks (:

  9. Rice milk hot chocolate... oh my! Sounds delightful. Absolutely stunning photos - Australia is copping a beating by some massive storms (and even tornados)! I would much rather be taking pretty photos of snow covered branches :)
