What are the first signs of winter - The start of December? Christmas decorations? The dark mornings? Or the now traditional breaking of the thermocouple on our boiler?

Certainly frosts have started to appear and provided a rather picturesque walk to work this morning.  Ladygrove meadow had a white cover:

The trees on the Ock valley walk are finally devoid of leaves (nearly):

And the Barton Fields nature reserve is, as always, an ideal opportunity for a photograph:


  1. We've been spoilt by temperatures so far have'nt we? I love the cold crisp mornings.

  2. It's one of my favourite times of the year - crisp mornings and a good frost. It invigorates the senses

  3. Beautiful serene photos, Richard.

  4. Thanks Kate, I did take what I thought were better pictures. But they were somewhat spoilt by a blob on my lens.
