This was the view along my road last week. Snow hit the UK in the first (and most likely last) big way this year, and as usual, the country underwent a mini meltdown over a few inches of the soft stuff.
I love the cold - the fresh brush of an icy wind against my face; the cool blue of an early twilight; tiny icicles hanging from ripe red berries on bushes lining the roads. But even I can only take so much of constantly grey skies filled with thick clouds before I crave a little sun.
To take my mind off of the encroaching gloom, I pour over photos taken in warmer climbs...
