Nature in December

Snow covered branches of a tree tunnel in County Cork.

Happy New Year! It's been almost a year now since I gave this space an update and started sharing my photography. The monthly series has nearly come full circle and I'll have to think about doing some other posts. I'm getting tired of doing the same thing, ha ha. To start off the month of December, here are some nature photographs I've captured around County Cork. I love looking back at the different years to see what the weather has been like. In December of 2013 we had a snow day mid month. In 2014 we had plenty frost but no snow. The next two years, 2015 and 2016, there has been no snow. In 2017 we had some snow fall at the start of the month and then after Christmas too. Last year, 2018, we had plenty frost again but no snow. Although the winter in Ireland is yet to some, as January and February are the coldest months. And it wasn't until March last year that we got some real snow that lasted a few days. I hope our snow days are still in front of us.
