Lake Needwood

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 12 December 2013 in Landscape & Rural.

On Tuesday it snowed about 3 inches. I went to Lake Needwood to try and capture some pictures of the lake and snow. At this point the snow was coming down moderately. We usually don't get snow in December. It usually arrives in January.

I love it when the landscape and colours change to white and grey.
We have had none at all yet, although it is not unheard of in December, temperatures have been very mild lately with southerly breezes. I enjoyed watching the Bears in the snow at the weekend, could not have been much fun for the Cowboys!

@Curly: I love it when they get so muddy on the playing field!

Wonderful winter scene around a lake. That looks cold, but it's so nice that you captured a lake and the opposite bank between trees. I've heard that the cold wave is affecting daily lives in your country, such as some pileups on roads. Take care. Have a nice day. :)

As if the trees hang on to summer on the one half, and succumb to winter on the other .. and the quality of the light very special in this serene quiet scene ..!
