Snow Day ( 2 )

A surprise fall of several centimetres of snow over the night of 4 / 5 February.

The flakes were so large that when they began falling my brain thought that they were cherry blossoms, which I quickly decided was unlikely ( being Winter in the Northern hemisphere ).

At 10:00 the next morning the sky was still full of more snow.

Entrance to the Lead Mines via Falcon Park. That curvature is not an artifact of the panorama, that is the actual lie of the land!
