Frosty mornings in Somerset can be a quickly passing sight, as the sun appears it melts away the frozen dew clad veil. But the last week has been different, the shimmering icy powder has lingered throughout the day, especially where the long winter shadows have stretched across the frozen earth.

The soft light bouncing into ,and out of, even the darkest corners. It’s been totally magical!
