This is an extraordinary image. First, it’s very unusual indeed for the whole of the British Isles to be covered in snow – normally snow falls just on part of the country. But here we are, for the second week, with snow blanketing the whole country. The second reason it’s extraordinary is that it’s also very unusual for the snow to be followed, as it has been this week, with day after day of sunshine, and it’s those clear skies that have created the picture opposite. I think it’s stunningly beautiful, and very much an image that’s only been possible in recent decades, of course.

I took advantage of the snow myself over the weekend (before the last snowfall) and took some pictures. The one on the left is just one of them. Here’s a link to the rest of the set.
