Winter weather hasn’t really arrived yet, at least not for the North York Moors. Vicious gales and horizontal torrential rain has been the order of the day so far. Occasionally, when winds have calmed and the rain has ceased, clear overnight skies have given rise to a frosty morning. But it’s a weak frost that vanishes at the sun’s first touch.
In dips and hollows frozen puddles provide a source of entertainment long after frost has melted away. Exploring them with a camera is always fun, especially when there is a mix of direct light and open shade. I think of it as playtime for grown-ups.
