Unlike much of North America—especially this year when the Polar Vortex descended over the continent—our winters are relatively warm. The result is that I haven’t had many opportunities to take wintery pictures. But recently we had a wee dump of snow, and since then it’s stayed below freezing and often sunny. So I’ve had a few chances (when not slaving over a hot computer) to take some pictures. This is the first of a series I hope to put up.
