Winter 2010 / 2011

On 10th October, Hampton Wick awoke to its first hard frost of the autumn. And what a spectacular one! It was a classic combination of a clear dawn sky, a low winter sun, and the perfect white ice crystals of a hoar frost. Bad news for any last, end-of-season squashes, chillies, peppers, and dahlias – they were all done for. But good news for amateur photographers.
