Not wishing to make you feel old...

I was not even a twinkle in my Dad's eye then was it bad.

One thing about snow is my garden looks as good as my neighbour's.

Yes Nick, I came home from a party the night before and couldn't find my car the next day - an A30 under a 5 foot drift!

Great Photo's Nick. As a filmmaker the snow also inspired me to get out and record it (well actually the fact that a filming job had been cancelled due to the weather and I was kicking my heels around at home). So I set off for a few hours down at Priory Park, check out the results on my vimeo page

Very chilled - literally and metaphorically. Thanks Nigel.

Nigel -

Thank you. Just watched both films. Brilliant shots. I slightly prefer Winter Wonderland, with the slower pace. But that's probably a sign of me slowing down!

Nick, in the top photo (looking East) I can't quite make out what the object is just below the horizon on the right hand side (a black triangle). It looks like one of those stunt kites, it couldn't be a kite surfer could it? They are mad enough!

Yep its a kite! crazy fool,

Whist it was calm with only very light winds if the cold got to him and he got in trubble he would have been a burden on the RNLI, police & ambulance crews people should really think first.
