We’ve had our first snow. Ireland usually doesn’t get much snow at all, to get snow in November is very unusual. This country slows down and sometimes seems to come to a complete stand still when it snows. Roads are rarely cleared, people don’t have winter tires and if they do venture out, it’s a slip slidy and dangerous affair.
Temperatures climbed just above 0˚C for a little while so most of the snow fell from the tree branches and the road outside our house turned into a snowy sludge. At around 4 pm the sub-zero returned and made everything lovely and crunchy. The light was just beautiful so I went outside and took a few photos.

I’m fascinated with the crows in the garden and eager to get an in-flight, close-up action shot. This guy was flying overhead but by the time I got the lens cap off he had turned and was heading off. Nice he decided to fly into the setting sun though.
