    Today in England it snowed

    And it's snowing even more now, most we've had for 18 years

    Welcome to the Club de neige (from Massachusetts where if we don't have a foot on the ground, there is something odd)

    Went to college thinking it would clear by afternoon... they closed the Strand campus at 2pm

    But nice photo opportunity!

    Thanks Streetshooter.

    My personal choice between the two is the color version only due to the tone separation that the color version delivers on the foreground bush.

    I would vote for the b&w version - it has a very tranquil charm. A nice image either way, that's for sure

    Hi Will/Ntrolls,

    Very nice pictures. I think I remember the 18 years ago people are refering too. Caused quite sime chaos as I recall.

    I hope you are enjoying the sights in place of trying to get around!

    Thanks Helen and Ed. I'm beginning to back into the DP1 again.

    A few from today. Schools are closed so there is fun to be had.

    Hi Will,

    I am not sure if I have asked this before but is this Danbury? Looks like Griffin hill and the lakes at Danbury park.

    It's South Weald park near Brentwood but it's very similar to Danbury.

    Will,

    It does look very similar to Danbury!

    I used to consider Essex flat until I moved to Belgium!

    Last week here in Adelaide, we had the hottest day in about 70 years at 45.5c.

    Send some of that snow our way please.

    BTW: great images, love your work!

    Hello All,
    Hallelujah, some of us have been waiting years for a drop of the white stuff to fall from heaven!
    Caught en passant outside a 'Help The Aged' office this morning in Bath.
    LX3 in 'Intelligent Auto" mode- more intelligent than me, in fact.

    Cheers,
    Gandolfi.

    I'm putting this one up just to show the amazing detail the DP1 can capture. It is a B&W conversion from a crop of the orange life ring I posted earlier.

    Will, that is detailed. You can easily count the pickets on the far-sided fence.

    Hello All,

    Indeed, great shots, Will.

    It is indeed snowing in England today- unfortunately 50 miles north of Bath- so here are some more from last week.

    LX3 in b/w.

    Cheers,
    Gandolfi.

    This from this morning with my little Pentax W60 waterproof P&S. So cool to be able to take this thing out in any weather. I even did a self-timer shot by sticking it in a snow bank!
