 Post subject: Xander's winter photos
PostPosted: Thu Oct 21, '10, 2:16 pm 
So after a chat with SS1 yesterday I realised I have never uploaded more than a few of my wintry here. So given the time of year, now would be as good a time as any to do so. Most of these were taken during the last winter, when we had the most snow and when I was out and about a lot.

This is just a general pick and mix from what I have on my comp, all taken from places across the country. Believe me, there are plenty more where these came from.

These are all beautiful scenes. You're really lucky to have such wonderful outdoor areas to explore. Pictures of fields and areas where there is a thick blanket on the ground that hasn't been disturbed by anything walking across are always amazing. I especially like the first photo; the trees look almost like a tunnel leading back through the snow.

Thanks for sharing all of these with us, Xander!

Thanks for posting these, Xander! Gosh, they all take my breath away. Snow is so beautiful! I really can't pick a favorite as each one is more amazing than the one before. Looking at these pictures, I can really understand why you love hiking, climbing, as much as you do. It must be so invigorating being out among nature like this! I'll never get tired of looking at photos like these. Thanks! :)

I don't know about invigorating. While there are moments for sure, when it comes to walking in winter it can be a heck of a slog at times, especially in really deep snow. :p

For example, the 4th picture from the bottom was taken on probably one of the toughest days. We literally climbed up that mountain on the right. It started off as a walk up but after a while we ended up having to dig out holds in the snow for hands and feet so we could climb up, never mind the numerous patches of ice and outcrops of rock that we had to go around. There was a group of climbers at the top with crampons and axes with them and the look on their faces was priceless when we told them we did it with no climbing gear, especially when one of them went to have a look over the edge from where we appeared.

Anyway, here are some more pics.

:lol: I think you should have taken a picture of those climbers' faces. That next to last photo, the cave, looks just like something from a video game. I'm sure I've seen that very cave in Oblivion. ;)

Well I do have a photo of those climbers somewhere, just not what you're asking for Thoul. I was too busy battling the winds to put my jacket on while we were talking. :D

As for the 'cave' you mentioned, it's actually known as a Hermitage. The name explains the rest. It sits inside a large area of woodland, next to a large river and is quite easy to find due to the numerous signs found along the motorway leading to the area. here's a photo of the interior and the river next to it. These were taken in winter, just FYI.

I was using one of my older cameras at the time too, so apologies for the excessive flash and such.
