Weight and Stuff Report – 30 January 2010

Ho hum, back up a bit today. Must be because of not walking to work, or something.

I was a wee bit surprised when I got up this morning – there was a quite heavy fall of snow overnight which I hadn’t been expecting at all. But unlike the last snowfall, this one doesn’t look like it’ll be hanging around, as the sun is shining from a bright blue sky, and it seems to be melting.

Anyway, whether it stays or goes, a bright sunny morning with lots of snow on the ground was just the thing to persuade me to go for a walk in Saltwell Park. And so I did, taking the Canon 5D MkII with me. The snow was thick underfoot – easily four inches or so in most places, but it was that nice, soft powdery stuff that’s actually quite pleasant to walk through, rather than the nasty icy stuff we had earlier in the month. I had a good wander round the park – the time stamps on the 130 or so pictures I took tell me I was there just over an hour – and I do believe I’ve got some good pictures. I’ll post more of them later, but here’s a quick taster:

I sometimes forget what a wonderful park I have so close to home. This picture should remind me, and I think I’ll be printing it…

And here’s the Dene, looking quite lovely.
