Foxglove in the Snow

Tuesday, January 5th 2021

When Foxglove is covered in snow it takes on an almost magical air and places look different.

Down at the lake, the water was frozen and then covered in snow, the reeds contrasting with the stark whiteness.

The wildfowl feeding platform gives a different view and showed some clear water.

The Mallards were not to be seen until the bridge was crossed and looking down the lake there they all were on the ice.  Trails through the semi frozen snow and water can be seen.

The moor can be cold in the middle of summer and in winter it is bleak but with a majesty all of its own.  Spigot Mere was half covered with snow.

In the distance the Stone Circle stands proud.


Thanks to Roger Suddaby for the photographs.
