"X" is for "eXtraordinary Snow Shapes" - well, sort of! It's the best idea for an "X" post that I could come up with for now!
As the snow that has blanketed the area for the last ten days suddenly thaws, I bring you a photograph showing eXtraordinary shapes created by the snow and wind.
This is the footpath that runs from Broadcarr up to the summit of Hartshead Pike and the photo was taken from almost the same spot as a previous photo, "Wintry Sun".
The footpath runs between two dry-stone walls and the wind has whipped the snow not only into drifts but into peaks rather like whipped cream! These peaks projected sideways from the wall. You can see where people have walked by close to the other wall. Surprisingly, no-one had been tempted to break these snowy peaks.
"eXtraordinary Snow Shapes" is a contribution to ABC Wednesday. For more "X" posts from around the world please follow this link.
