On Frozen Lake

Frozen Lake – Branton

There was a thin covering of snow along the Breamish Valley yesterday that quickly turned to ice in the just-below-zero temperatures. This made for some striking photos while on my walk around Branton Lakes Nature Reserve.

Large areas of both lakes were frozen over – with many water birds simply standing around on the ice.
