No snow on the ground, but the lake remains partially frozen.

Insomnia, a full moon and a clear sky!

I have had limited opportunities to get out with my camera this month. This photo of the war memorial in front of York Minster was taken at the very end of last year, but had been sitting unedited until today. I do intend to largely stick to my original plan of only uploading new photos, but some older ones may creep in from time to time.

A short walk at Askham Bog to get a bit of fresh air. I liked these grasses - quiet and gentle.

West Burton Waterfall in flood. The snow has melted fast, with the result that the falls are a pretty impressive sight - and sound! To be honest, I prefer them on a peaceful spring day when the sun is shining...

Not strictly speaking in accord with my intention of taking , processing and uploading a new photo every day - this was created from a photo I took earlier in the month - of some pink iced buns, believe it or not!

The River Nidd at Knaresborough. This is a scene I have photographed many times, although never with snow; this was also the first time that I had seen the river frozen over.

Yet more snow, and the birds had to fluff up to keep warm. This young female blackbird sat eying up some mealworms, whilst my cats looked on from the window!

A family enjoying the snow in North Yorkshire. More is forecast over the next couple of days.

I scattered some grated cheese for the birds, and these starlings were the first to help themselves. We still have a covering of snow and the temperature is below freezing so a high fat diet is important for them.

A fresh fall of snow overnight.
