The first snow of this winter…

A week ago parts of Exmoor experienced the first snowfall of this winter.  Overnight, the moors were turned into a winter wonderland.

Richard Cliff took this photo of a snowy tree tunnel on Exmoor at Five Cross Ways, Anstey Common, on 14 November 2019. On our Facebook page this image became an instant hit: Thanks to so many people liking and sharing the photo, it reached 52,000 people in a week.  

 

 

 

 

In pursuit of snow

“We took the landrover out to see if Exmoor got any ‘white stuff’ this afternoon. The sensible wildlife were hiding beside hedgerows sheltering from the icy winds… We spotted the ITV camera man doing his weather report from Dunkery Gate and the only other mad people out in the cold were the local photographers.”
