Please enjoy these beautiful new pictures of Brian May’s “May’s Wood” taken this month, and sent for our pleasure by Linda Lamon, who writes:
“I was down in the village recently and managed to capture some frosty pics of the wood under the ‘cold moon’. A magical time walking through what was a winter wonderland – but I had to be up at the crack of dawn to take them!”
“It was -3 celsius at 8am and a very deep hoar frost had formed. This unusual event happens when water vapour in the air comes into contact with solid surfaces that are already below freezing point, forming ice crystals immediately and continuing to grow as more water vapour is frozen during a still night.
The whole woodland looked magical, glistening in the morning Sun. The frost won’t damage the trees and shrubs now as they are so beautifully established and we’re looking forward to celebrating the ten year anniversary of the community planting day as we go into 2023!”
