The Ice Man Cometh - (Well actually I think he's well and truly here)

Boxing Day Walks

Yesterday Dave and I went on a couple of walks to blow away the cobwebs. I think you will all agree that  Jack Frost has truly been working his magic.

First up some photographs of the old quarry workings at Bollihope Burn.


Then a drive over the moors to Bowlees Picnic Area in Teesdale.

One of the lower frozen waterfalls...

...then a little further on, just around the corner...

Sumerhill force literally "frozen" in flow.

Behind the waterfall...

The ice was so stunning that it inspired Dave to take no less than 168 photographs but I have only bored you with shown you a small sample.

When he had finally exhausted his creative bent, we retired home to a warm fire, hot chocolate with marshmallows and cream and homemade shortbread - bliss ;oD
