Weighty Stuff

This is a hefty load of snow for the plant to bear but as the day goes on, that weight will be lifted (or dropped) as the snow begins to melt.

Crooked Woodland

Whether there is snow or not this year, this is be a popular place for people to walk on Boxing Day. The footpath round Lliw Lower Reservoir features in my Winter Reservoir Walk, part of the StillWalks at Lliw Reservoir collection available on request or at the reservoir cafe.

The video is featured below, so if you don’t want to go out if it is pouring rain again . . .

Winter Branches

The woodland becomes almost completely monochrome under its blanket of snow. I love the complexity of pattern and texture revealed in these snowy woodland shots around the Lliw Lower Reservoir near Swansea.

Winter Reservoir

We don’t often get snow where I live but now and then it comes and changes the landscape. These shots are from a production walk I did two years ago.¬†This week I am looking at images that I used in the video and some that I didn’t – almost all the photos I have picked out have different crops to those in the video.

A Winter That Never Happened

We did not have Winter this year where I live – last Winter, however, was different.

Having said that, his new StillWalks video is obviously from last Winter. I have only just completed it and would like to present it as this week’s featured video before the we are completely out of the season that never happened.

This featured StillWalks video will be available on this blog all week and will then revert to a small sample version. The video features Lower Lliw Reservoir near Swansea, South Wales.
