Snowy Woking

It snowed like crazy here in Woking... on Saturday, that is. It has stopped since but the temperatures have stayed well below zero so frost is still around as is most of the snow.
I wandered off on Saturday afternoon after the snow had stopped falling. Much as I would've liked to go out and take pictures of the snow falling, I felt way too protective of my camera!

I decided to take my tripod with me, which I knew would give me the opportunity to take some really nice pictures but would also end up hindering me most of the time! In the end, it was a mixed bag and it helped and annoyed me all at once ;)
The best comment I received from a passing cyclist whilst I was trying to cross a snowy road with a fully extended tripod? 'Wow, I thought you were carrying skis!!!'
Nope, not this time, mate!

Anyway... I used three separate lenses though my favorite by far is the macro lens. For the uninitiated, it's the lens that takes gorgeous close-ups. And I love it, love it, love it! It's fiddly and you have to know exactly what you're doing but boy, does it take some nice pictures if you get it right!!!

Anyway... enjoy - these are the best from that two hour trip on Saturday! :)
