UK weather has oscillated wildly in the last few months, with unseasonablywarm periods and just the old cold snap, as the succession of 'Atlantic lows'decide whether to go north, south, or over us.

Last week it really seemed that Spring had arrived. In Aberdeen, 4.2 degrees of latitude north of here in Cheshire, the daytime temperature was 19.8 degrees C, a typical pleasant summer temperature. The following day it was -2C there. It wasn't quite such a swing here, but I woke up to this on Sunday morning...

So I rushed out to climb our local hill again, taking the quickest route, known by me as "The Hundred and Thirty-one Steps"...

This was about 4 hours after the early morning shots, and most of it's gone from the grassland. I descended to the pub, and claimed my free soup, bread and a pint, as promised by the landlord/chef when I gave him my misty images of his pub a month or two ago.

All lovely and worthwhile shots, Alan T. #3 evokes a strange feeling of nostalgia in me.

The hundred and thirty-one steps to sunshine featuring in #3, especially appeals to me bothin terms ofthe idea andthe composition!

Hi Alan

I heard about the weird weather you guys were having there in the UK. A number of my friends around England and Scotland told me about it.

Wow... talk about spring snow! I particularly like your last photo... with that mix of white (where the snow still was) and green (where it had already melted). It almost looks like a photo from two seasons pasted together!

I'm glad your friendly pub owner honoured those lovely misty photos with the free soup, bread and a pint as he had promised! I'll have to keep that in mind for a way of getting fine food!!!

Thanks for sharing

Paul
