Views of Foxglove

Saturday, February 14th 2015

Over the last few weeks Foxglove has been covered in snow, with ice on all the ponds and lake.  There have been dark, heavy skies and blue skies.  Rain, dampness, and wind all thrown in to the mix.  Whatever the conditions Foxglove is photogenic. 

The pools had some ice but also some unfrozen water which allowed just a hint of reflection of the trees.

Blue skies and white fluffy clouds made it look spring like, but it certainly was not.

The snow melted as the temperature rose slightly, but still remained in some sheltered places, more to come? This view across the Voley pond into the willow carr is truly amamzing.

Soon, well in a couple of months, the view along the Sycamore Avenue will change and the predominant colour will be green again.

A different view of the larch trees near the moor.  There are still plenty of cones on these trees and birds can be seen feeding here, flitting from one branch to another.

A gentle breeze caused some ripples across the water surface as this photograph of Cotton Grass was taken. 

Reflections again
