Exausted but happy after a two hour snow walk capturing a bunch of gorgeous artwork care of the Siberian winds invading London.
Frozen lake with frosted snow.
Trees from the old flooded gravel pits emurgingthrough the ice – surreal!
Path between one of the lakes and the river (the only thing not frozen).
That’s not land but frozen water!
The wind tried its hand at sculpture here (notice the icycle sculpture formed on the branch hanging from the weir.)
The river resisting all attempts at transformation.
Farm at the canals side busily wheeling supplies – no animals out today!
Boats on the Grand Union Canal. The ice was melted in little circles around them – at – 4 deg. doubtless they had the heating full on!
No heating on this boat!
Like a spot of Heaven! Built by Goudi’s teacher on behalf of the local choir. Still hosts musical events from around the world. Breathtaking! Note the nature theme of roses. It was far lighter than my limited photography skills can portray (there were no dark areas, it glows with light!)

Bursts of fruiting joy in a green sea.
First splash of colour.
Sparkling line of brilliant light.
Woke to see the mist outside my window, grabbed my camera and headed to the lakes. (These days are when I wish I were a better photographer!)
I love the serenity of this, like the end of a perfect day!
(Gleaned from a friend’s face book page – the ultimate “how to” in becoming a super hero!)
The fuzzy blossom that I cycled through like fluttering rains a few days back now carpets the floor.
The geese are still out foraging among the picnickers. Looking for a hand out they mistake my camera for bread.
A yacht overturns and there’s a momentary scurry as other boats come to the rescue sails snapping in the stiff breeze of the lake.
Meanwhile families, lovers, crazy teenagers and grinning boys take to the water.
I amble down the inviting paths and enjoy a secret, dappled enclave with the swans.
