Some observations on the subject of cows

December 20th, 2009

I’m back at home in Hastings at the moment. Went on the hill near our house with t’family this afternoon and encountered this herd of cows. They are cute!

It looks like they are well prepared for the snow with all that hair!

Snow day!

Last week doof.me.uk brought you coverage of fog. This week we bring you yet another weather phenomenon: snow!

What to take a picture of to demonstrate “snow”? How about the Maidenhead bridge? A favourite of this blog, here it is covered in snow yesterday morning:

Not wanting to be accused of bridge favouritism, here’s a picture of that other excellent Maidenhead landmark, the Brunel railway bridge:

The fast trains make a nice wooosh effect with the snow when they go past, but sadly I couldn’t hang around to photograph it as I had to hurry to the station to go to work. Here’s my train!

A problem: how to stop snow photos coming out blue? I play with the white balance setting and this seems to help a little.
