This year I’ll be taking part in a weekly photography challenge – Little Leap 52.
There will be a different theme each week and I will need to try to take a photo to fit in with it.
It should be a lot of fun and I’ll obviously be sharing my efforts with you as the year goes on.
There have been two themes so far…
Week One : The beginning
This year I plan to try things I’ve never done (like joining a gym and climbing a mountain but more on those later!) I’ve always wanted to take a photo of a bubble when it’s below -20C. The bubbles freeze instantly in the air and then shatter into little ice flakes. Today the weather was obligingly nippy and while it took patience and quick reflexes I managed to get a few shots before the cold got too much!

Week Two: Nature
Most of the nature in these parts is covered with snow and ice at this time of year but here and there you can see glimpses of green.
