Silver Birch Trees in Snow

Throwback Thursday travels back to Cheshire, England in the mid 1990s.

More specifically, Bickerton Hill, Cheshire after a snowfall. In this photo I am looking down onto Silver Birch trees at the base of a section of the hill.

CFFC: Autumn Scenes

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Autumn Scenes.

I had a couple of ideas for the challenge before deciding to concentrate on one area, Bickerton Hill in Cheshire, England.

Throwback Thursday: Odd One Out

Throwback Thursday travels back to Cheshire, England in the 1990s.

I had gone to Bickerton Hill, Cheshire looking for wildlife and any early autumn colour. I noticed the blue green of a solitary conifer amongst a sea of green Silver Birch trees and used a telephoto lens to pick the conifer out.

Trails in the snow

The new Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge is Walks, Trails, Sidewalks.

Not the most appropriate challenge for someone currently stuck in a hospital bed but I can’t resist a challenge.

I had a few ideas but in the end went with my first one. I can’t explain why the snow didn’t stick to the trails through the trees. As the trails are sand maybe the sand was to damp or to warm.
