First frosts

First frost

Across the whole of the UK this week, the temperature has dropped and finally ushered in Winter’s belated arrival and although the snow’s not blanketing us all as of yet, the frost is certainly nipping at our bones. To celebrate this mercury-lowering event, lets have a picture: this icicle has formed via water running across a dying fern’s roots, which just so happens to be hanging upside down from a train tunnel’s concave roof and in just the right position to form this wicked looking shard of ice.

*Shot on a Canon 350d 8mp dSLR using a Sigma 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 lens with settings at ISO-200, lens at f/4, pattern metering mode and an exposure time of 1/200 seconds*
