But you really do have to strike while the iron is hot (or in this case while the snow is cold) as our two recent snowy spells here in Framlingham each lasted little more than twenty-four hours. Snap number one came on Sunday so we walked to the town's most photogenic spot and took a few photos.
As you can see, the day was overcast and grey and the photos have very little colour.
Yesterday was another matter. A second overnight snowfall was accompanied by a cloudless day and the photos took on an altogether different hue.

I'm sure that a professional photographer could have taken some glorious and far better shots but it was good to be able to capture these fleeting moments in our local landscape.
