Snow clearing on 20th January 2015

With an accumulated snow depth of some 30-40cm over the last 3-4 days, it was time to clear my driveway (the snow was over my highest boots). With 30m in to the house and another 20m to the wood pile and outside bioloo, I got some good healthy winter exercise :)








The pictures are long exposure shots in the dark with some light from the street lights and moon…
This winter is a hard one for perennials as the soil was probably frozen solid down to the bedrock before the snow arrived…
My Facebook feed and newspapers have been full of adverts to buy your snow-clearing machinery yesterday…no way in my garden!

Eagle fly past

Malvik is on the north edge of a large low pressure system over the UK giving southern Norway a lot of snow and strong easterly winds here, the house creaking as we speak! Much warmer today at -8C, but bitterly cold because of the wind chill. My garden is quite exposed and the small birds disappear to more sheltered spots on days like today. Rushed out to get these pictures of a White-tailed Eagle / Havørn, you can get an impression of its size against the Hooded Crow / KråkeP1510576 P1510577P1510574P1510575
