It was a surprise this morning to see how much snow had fallen overnight. The Common was beautiful this morning, basking in the spring sunshine with a covering of snow. It was melting so quickly and I’m sure we were out during the best part of the day.
I know its been cold this week buts that mainly been down to early morning frosts and cold northerly winds. It was a surprise this morning to see so much snow on the Malvern Hills and even on the common. It was amazing how much more snow there was as we headed up towards the top of the common.
My January challenge was to take a photo every day using one of my Lensbaby Sweet optics. The shots are all below. Previously I have struggled with the Sweet 80 but during January, I seemed to use it the most.
I did cheat one day and use the Lensbaby Circular Fisheye lens.
It was amazing on the common this morning. To the east the mist was clinging to the landscape as the sun rose and the hills looking fantastic with a covering of frost and snow.
We explored some different paths along our usual route round the Old Hills this morning. The countryside is beautiful and we so often fail to appreciate what’s on our doorstep.
Jack and I went for a wander round Malvern Common last weekend.
It was a lovely cold, bright, sunny morning. With all the recent rain the common was wet and muddy but we found the first snowdrops of the year.

It was a cold misty morning today. There has been so much rain this month everywhere is wet and muddy. Despite this I did take my camera with me and had a play with the Sweet 35 and Sweet 80 optics.
I used the Sweet 35 for the close up shots.

We were out earlier than usual for a weekend, we wanted to be back for the rugby. It was still dark when we left the house but I took my camera bag in the hope I’d get a good sunrise shot. I was after a “Landscape” shot for my Project 52. I was hoping to get the Malvern Hills in the reflected light of the sunrise. I started out with the Lensbaby Velvet 85 on my camera but swathed to the Velvet 56 about half way round.
I didn’t get the shot I wanted but I was pleased with the shots of Kempsey, across the river and the telegraph poles stretching into the distance. So many times I’ve wished they weren’t there!
When we went further round the Hills to the western side, facing the Malvern Hills the cloud was clinging to the top but the sun hadn’t risen enough to illuminate them. I still got some interesting shots, what do you think?
It was one of those beautiful sunny winter days which was also freezing cold. A great day for capturing the spring flowers which are beginning to come out. Tyke can now go out , and all week I’ve been walking him round the block, past a fantastic array of snow drops and crocus, wishing I had time to go get my camera. Today I left Tyke at home and went out with my camera and Lensbaby Velvet 56.
Having had some fun there I went up the garden to the bunch of primroses which are growing in a shelter spot by the steps. My favourite shots from the day are below. I hope you enjoy them.
