Earlier this month most of the UK was treated to a late winter snow fall. Nicknamed the 'Beast from the East', the icy winds and thick blanket of snow caused havoc on Britain’s roads. I braved the freezing temperatures for a walk up to Mousehold Heath in Norwich, which looked very picturesque in the late … Continue reading Snow!
The following photos were taken while walking around Cambridge with a friend - the ice rink in particular was great fun to observe!
On Boxing Day I watched the dinghies and keelboats racing from Waveney & Oulton Broad Yacht Club, and took a few photos. I couldn't resist getting a bit more creative with some of my photos, even using the reflections in the clubhouse windows!
