A beautiful day with a magnificent ending!
Majestic cloud above Great Linford Inclosure
The New Forest is partly made up of ancient and ornamental woodland. This old oak is a very fine example, even without it’s clothes on!
The hard overnight frost is disappearing quickly in the morning sun, but this spot on the banks of Linford Brook hangs onto the whiteness with shadows from Pinnick Wood mottling it’s appearance.
A young ash tree on the banks of the brook.
The "log" waterfall has a wonderful line of icicles along the sticks that have dammed the brook
Zooming in on the icicles with the water frothing below.
A New Forest pony forages for the best greenery after the cold night – getting very cold feet in the process!
Prior to the rain and wind forecast for the next few days, we are treated to a peach of a sunset.
A lovely lenticular cloud sitting over the sunset – we don’t get many of them, they tend to be more frequently seen in mountainous regions.
“My first sundog! As a new member of the Cloud Appreciation Society, I’m lucky to see this!
That lenticular cloud again, darkened by the setting sun below it, looks like a proper UFO now
A little later the lenticular cloud has gone and replaced by a cloud I haven’t yet identified that looks like a fish bone
The final moments of the dying sun and it’s turned huge and only a barely discernable disc of incredible colour.
