On Saturday, 10 December, Exmoor woke up to quite a bit of snow. Mark Ten-Bokkel was one of many people who headed up to the moor to take some photos. Here is his selection:

Exmoor Ponies are ready for winter
It has been bitterly cold over the past days on Exmoor, creating a magical landscape.
Sarah Veen shared some of her photos with us in our Facebook Photo Group:
Icicles by our Babbling Brook this morning. Love the one with the piece of bracken encased in ice. Near Challacombe.
When Exmoor awakens

Great colours on this evening’s walk – from the greens of the moss on the trees in Barton Wood to the quality of the light looking across the Bristol Channel to Wales.Danny Jarvis, 4 February 2021
Winter at the Valley of Rocks
The beach between Watchet and Doniford is home to some of the earliest ammonite fossils recorded in Britain.
The red and green striped rocks on your left are Mercia Mudstones, dating from a time when the landmass was part of an ancient desert near the hot equator, similar to the Sahara today; on your right are grey mudstones belonging to the Helwell Marls. These marls are the youngest Jurassic rocks exposed on the Somerset coast and date from around 200 million years ago, when sea levels rose and Watchet was submerged in shallow seas. Here you will find some of the earliest ammonite fossils recorded in Britain.Love Watchet
Lewis Winter took the kids for a walk on 3 February, enjoying the sunshine, and came back with these photos:

It’s finally February! The month of hope and the promise of spring.
Sadly, Snowdrop Valley won’t be open this year. So we thought we share some photos from last year with you. Lin Selley posted them in our FB Photo Group.
