On the Somerset, Dorset border

Beautiful! You got the sky at just the right time, with the subtle tones of purple & turquoise blue and the complementary orangy yellows. The frost covered field could almost be rippled water, and the stout fence posts for mooring. Must be enlarged to really see it. I love it! Theolfa

Thanks Theolfa, a lovely description! Just had to stop the car and take a pic. Best wishes, Rosa.


An unusual sky for around 10am. I have got the wrong year on this one too. I'm so glad you noticed :-) Have you got snow yet?

Cheers, Rosa.

It was a good sunrise that was being taken over by the snow clouds Bill. It snowed later in the day but it didn't last very long! Many thanks for the L/F.

Best regards, Rosa.
