White fluff in January

Snow in Trent Park 2

It finally snowed in London!

It was meant to be a short lunch time stroll in Trent Park in Cockfosters (a mile or so walk from home), which lasted the whole afternoon, I was heavily seduced by the white fluff and vast land of natural beauty.  A 3 mile walk around the park forgotten to eat and happily snap away whatever caught my sight, my Dr Marten boots got covered in mud and dirty slush, spotted a few pheasants roaming freely in the fields that looked desirable to eat, then myself, a lone rambler transformed into a snow covered hungry yeti lost in Snowdom.  The fact that I didn’t eat lunch (oh silly me), I eventually lost my appetite and resorted to a tub of Pringles, TAKE THAT! Mi-eow!

    Stunning, that last photo is my favourite. I wish I could have escaped my desk in the day time and taken photos like these!

    You sure do live far Kit, I used to study at Middlesex Uni, Trent Park campus. It’s a beautiful place to chill in the fields for picnic especially in the summer I miss it there.

    I’ve never seen pheasants in real life before, funny you mentioned that they look desirable to eat, according to my friend they actually do taste great.

    WOW! You had a lot more snow than me it seems. I went out to walk Kobi at 11 and it was snowing so heavily but not settling at all 🙁 I so desperately want to photograph him in the snow!

  • Tania 15th January 2013 at 14:54

    Shame it didn’t snow today, it would have been fun to build a snowman in my back garden, the snow has melted…not a chance!

  • Mifa 15th January 2013 at 18:54

    Mieow indeed. The photographs are gorgeous and ethereal.

  • Marlene @ chocolatecookiesandcandies 15th January 2013 at 20:37

    Stunning, stunning photos! We barely got a sprinkling of snow so my daughter and her friends were heartbroken.

  • Karina 16th January 2013 at 00:45

    ahhhhh, this is so gorgeous. I don’t blame you for forsaking food and just enjoying the view. Thanks for sharing!!

    These photos are breathtaking, Kit! I really miss snow in Canada- despite causing traffic jams!
    Should’ve taken a picture of those Pringles and stuck it into the post 😛
