This is my chosen photograph
My first thought when I wondered how to depict ‘winter’ was that it ought to include snow but it was fairly obvious, with the mild weather we have been having, that the chance of us having snow before the deadline was minimal.
So I looked to see if I had any archive photographs of snow. Now I always say that if we get snow in Southampton it must mean that the rest of the country is experiencing blizzards! A mixture of clay soil and proximity to the sea is part of the reason I believe. This meant that I have very few photographs of snow especially more recent digital ones. I did find a few taken in my current garden with my son’s Sony bridge camera but they weren’t very good. I did however extract 600 pixels by 600 pixels from one photograph that I thought would almost do. But then I thought that trees bereft of leaves are another sign and so I went out and took a few pictures.
This was my second choice to the one at the top of the post. Which do you prefer?
