This morning the weather was dry and calm and about 4 degrees. We decided to do a little shopping and then stop for a coffee and walk at Trentham Gardens.The sun was bright and the temperature at the gardens was 1 degree C. Mist was forming in the distance and there was a consideration that it would become foggy in a few hours, so a short walk was the first choice.
The hare sculpture caught my attention - it stood out in the sunshine and with the dry grass, the contrast was very good.
For the first time this year the lake was frozen over with a thin layer of ice. Gulls were walking on the ice and the misty and bright backdrop gave them a very dark silhouette.
Back home for lunch and batten down the hatches against the cold.
