Snow in England, December 2009



Early morning, December 18th... We woke up to a winter wonderland!





The joy of being retired... I don't have to break into my car, just walk the dog!










Milo is definitely a snow dog




Trying to get on the OTHER side of Milo so he doesn't have his back to the sun...
the trouble is, he thinks it's a game and he's a lot faster than I am!








... did you spot the chilly wood pigeon in the previous photo?




A new walk-friend of Milo's, a cross between a Pug and a Cavalier King Charles - this one had a lovely temperament




There's a slightly Narnia feeling about this...




My second-ever HDR photo. The upper and lower parts come from two different images at different exposures, and a lot more work after that! My little Lumix camera will take three photos in rapid succession at different exposures, and even without a tripod it wasn't hard to align two of the images in different Photoshop layers. I temporarily used the "multiply" blend with one image inverted so that I could see both images at once, and used the Move tool and arrow keys to nudge one layer a pixel at a time. There are fancier ways of doing HDR but this worked fine for me with Photoshop 7.








23rd December... we nearly had a White Christmas, but this was the last properly snowy day.
For those who didn't have to travel, the last 6 days have been great!
