A few shots taken out in the fens of Cambridgeshire.

I was on my way home from my daughter’s and the light was almost gone but I couldn’t resist stopping!

It’s as flat as flat can be!

It looks bleak and it was – but it was also so very quiet.

I love the way snow muffles sound don’t you ?






 I will post a few more of these tomorrow.


You can see my other blog 1500 Saturdays here  with more snow and trees too 😉

  1. I think the nature and quality of the light adds greatly to these images – they have an atmosphere that would have been difficult to capture otherwise. They are tremendously effective.

    • Thank you Louis.. it was the light and mist that made me stop… in fact I had to drive down the long drove road, round the roundabout and back the way I came to get the shots.. had to be done 😉

    • Thank you so much Stuart. I am especially pleased that you like the top one because I love it.. I think it works because I have so much land and so little sky.. I also picked a spot where there was a lot of snow in the foreground and less towards the horizon..

  3. Oh you British, with your fens and moors, wolds and washes, downs and meres!

    We have all those things here, across the pond, but nowhere near as poetically named.

    I’ve been watching Downton Abbey lately, so I’m particularly enthralled with your island these days.

    • haha.. I laughed at this F&B .. especially because you have been watching Downton Abbey and I must be almost the only person on these islands who isn’t watching it as I don’t have TV !!

  4. Yes, I love how snow makes it seem so silent…it’s actually one of my favourite things! 🙂 I really like the third image down, the composition, the two trees all really strike that certain something in me! 😀
