Pictures of snow in Lincolnshire

Updated on September 9, 2014

Does Lincolnshire get much Snow - Winter Scenes From Lincolnshire

Snow In Lincolnshire is quite unusual; at least the heavy sort is. The weather here is balmy, maybe a little more windy on the East Coast, but usually we avoid snow or just manage a sprinkling at odd times and it quickly melts away. The photos in this article therefore are pretty unusual for the Lincoln area and signs of a very hard winter all over Britain. Well, does Lincolnshire get much snow in winter? Up to two years ago I would have said "No! Very little snow" Lincolnshire has quite a mild climate and snow is rare here. The last couple of years Lincolnshire has had a lot of snow. Being stranded by snow at this time gave me a wonderful opportunity for photography. Here are some pictures of Lincolnshire in the snow.

Photos in this lens are all my own work unless otherwise stated. please do not copy!

Lincolnshire - a most temperate county!

Lincolnshire is not a place that is used to extremes of weather. When the rest of the country shivers under snow, we often escape the worst or get it later in smaller doses. In this week where the headlines are concerned with "winter travel misery" or "misery in the snow" all I want to do is show a lighter side by sharing some of my photos with you. Every cloud they say has its silver lining.

Our airports may be closed due to our usual British state of preparedness for the unexpected, our roads might be blocked because we do not have the wit to buy snow tyres nor does the government have the sense to enforce them on us. Our Christmas vacations may need to be rescheduled because our airports lack snow moving equipment, but when you look around, life goes on - and life in the snow is beautiful....

Wintry Scenes Are Beautiful

Lincoln in the Snow - Views Are A Trick Of The Light.....

Whatever your perspective on being warm or cold (and either extreme can be dangerous) I think snow is God's way of reminding us that we too are part of Creation. There is a harsh beauty in snow that we see nowhere else. Snow has a purity that is a shame to sully with our heavy footsteps. Sometimes frost has a way of preserving little things in a refracted light that makes them shine in new surprising and incredibly beautiful ways. I shall continue to photograph Lincolnshire in the ice and share it here....

Helping Wildlife - Essential Bird Baths

A birdbath is a way you can help wildlife all year round. When the water is frozen, the birds will visit to use your birdbath.

Lincoln in the Snow - Breaking the Ice

A Terrible Mistake For Wildlife!

When the ponds freeze we worry about build up of toxic gases killing fish and frogs. Birds have no drinking or bathing water either. However, the very worst thing you can do of course is to break the ice. This creates a shock wave which disturbs and can kill wildlife. It is best to fill a pan with hot water and place it on the ice in several places to make holes that allow gases to escape and birds to drink.

This picture shows holes that have refrozen and also an area of thin ice where holes had been created and refilling created a larger area of open water. The zazzle images were taken of birds enjoying holes I made with the hot pan technique.

How to Cope with Dangerous Travel

My first point is, however well prepared you may be, travel on snow and ice is always going to be difficult. There will always be those who think that a 60mph limit is always 60mph!

A good driver knows that a speed limit is a maximum in GOOD conditions. In poor visibility or icy driving conditions 30mph can be dangerous. In heavy snow where it is untreated and compressed, traction can be lost at any speed and cars spin off or become stranded. Where snow is a usual feature of winter, you can buy snow tires.

It is worth carrying some winter equipment with you. This should include snow shovel, blankets and extra clothing, cellphone, carpets for traction in snow, hot drinks in a flask, sweets or snacks, essential medication and of course de-icer. Keep your de-icer in the house though, because it works better when it is not frozen in a car you cannot enter because of frozen locks and seals.

      Slightly too real for comfort, just when I'm looking forward to the end of winter but lovely nonetheless.
