Photographer's Note

Taken from the Garrison, St. Mary's, looking across the Sound to St. Agnes, Isles of Scilly.

For those unfamiliar with the Isles of Scilly, they are a group of islands some twenty miles off the extreme tip of Cornwall (Land's End), and as such, enjoy a reputation for a very mild climate. Snow is almost unheard of. Not when I was there. This was taken a couple of days ago when the "mini-beast from the east" arrived. It had been snowing hard during the night, so when we woke up, it was obvious that the camera needed an early walk. As you can see, we were caught in another brief blizzard, but five minutes later the sun came out. By around 1100, virtually all the snow was gone; just a few forlorn humps which had been children's hurriedly-built snowmen.
