NZ0314 : Snowy meadow, icy docken

taken 8 years ago, near to Boldron, County Durham, Great Britain

Snowy meadow, icy docken
Snowy meadow, icy docken
The meadow lies under deep snow, but yesterday freezing rain fell, coating all the twigs on the trees and these docken seed heads with ice. More snow fell last night, sticking to the sloping branches of the trees, but not to the seed heads sticking up from the ground. The meadow is surrounded on all sides by belts of trees, the majority of the big ones being Ash. A low mist has not quite burnt off to reveal blue sky for the first time in a couple of days, and the sun is now warming the ice up enough that ice and snow are falling from branches all round the field.
