It's Snow Time

Shot of the Day

When I woke up this morning I was greeted by about 4 inches of snow that had fell through the night and another inch was to follow over the course of the morning. This put paid to all plans I had for the day. I was due to go to Carlisle to conduct some business but it wasn't that important that it warranted I should travel. I also reneged from taking my turn at the moorland feeders, which was rather disappointing as I wanted to see the grand new hide that has been constructed. I spent the morning catching up with college work that I had got behind with when I was off with my toe. While I was doing this I set the camera on the tripod and set the timer to take a series of photos to make a time lapse video of the snow at the rear of my house. Which hopefully you can view below.

After lunch and a snooze I went out and cleared the paths around the house and cleared the car of snow. I then spent a couple of hours processing the photos on Photoshop which was fun to do. In the evening Tootlepedal and I went to the Archive Centre to put a week of the E & L into the database but as there was no connection to the internet so we retired to Wauchope cottage and did the work there.  

Unfortunately viewing the time lapse video here on full screen it seems to have lost a lot of quality which is very disappointing as it is fine on my Facebook page.
