P365 - Day 196 - and there was snow (15/07/2011)

It's been very cold and wintery this week. The tops of the hills have been covered with snow, and earlier in the week people were even snowed in.

The Mountain always looks glorious topped with snow, especially on the beautiful, clear sunny days - or rather, the times during some days when it is beautiful and sunny. (These come between the cloudy, overcast parts of the day when you can't even see the Mountain.)

By the time I got around to taking this photo, it was afternoon, so the stunning clarity of the morning light had gone and the contrast between the sky and the snow is not as apparent.  Consider this my 'retro 70s' edit.


  1. Love that shot! I'm missing the mountains. My sister's little boy said it was covered in sugar. I wish I could have gone and seen the snow. xx

  2. Oh you should see it today! It looks just like icing sugar on top, just like your nephew said. tis beautiful :)


Hi! I know you hate having to type in the words as much as I do, but I am being furiously spammed, so I've had to reactivate that feature. If you're a real person I'd love to hear from you :-)
