One thing I must say for the cold frosty, snowy weather is that it delivers good sunrise photos. This photo is the morning sunrise from my garden, although just a little later than usual for me as I was hugging the bed a little longer.
Yesterday was not so romantic as it decided to snow all day. I was keeping an eye on the development of the snowflakes. At first they were fine and I was hoping for some rain, but then they grew and got bigger. Mr. Swiss had decided that he needed a new iPhone and I said OK, but in the afternoon when it does not snow, but it snowed. It was eventually bigger flakes, but temperatures were over 0° (just 1 or 2°C) so I decided to take the risk, I mean everyone drives on snow. I saw the cars on the near road were having no trouble. I then had a look at todays weather forcast with minus temperatures and decided at least there would be no icy surfaces.
Eventually I made off with Mr. Swiss in the car to the store. He was on a quest for a new phone and I decided to combine it with the week-end shopping.
I did my shopping and Mr. Swiss dealt with his telephone. He really thought his mobile had given up the ghost. It was a relatively new one and the guy in the shop fixed it in a couple of minutes and it is now working perfectly, so no new telephone. We eventually arrived home, tired both of us, and more or less happy. I thought I would not have to go shopping today, but of course I forgot a couple of things. On the other hand the weather is cold yes, but there is no fresh snow and the roads are normal. I only have a few things to get, so no problem.
In the meanwhile the birds are gathering for their morning feed. The sparrow having a drink and generally pecking around and the crow and the magpie discovering the bread I put out in the morning. Not a very good shot, although I was surprised how much detail I captured as it was only with my mobile phone through the window.
I would like to go places today again, as I am really stuck at home with only snow photos in my camera, but it depends on how the day develops and I have a mountain of ironing to do as well. In he meanwhile the sun has appeared with a blue sky and now I must move on.
Keep safe, and look forward to the week-end. It can only get better.
