Heavy overnight snow

It started snowing in the afternoon and snowed all evening and all night. The garden looked quite magical from my bedroom, so I set up the tripod and took this long exposure shot (9 secs, above). Warsaw's light pollution is evident this far out of town.

I woke up this morning and with the camera in the same position took the same scene. It had been snowing hard all night, although the temperature was hovering around zero.

The resulting snow cover was wet and heavy. The snow had drifted down to our end of the drive and was knee-deep by the fence. Together with two of our neighbours we had the entire drive free of snow by 10 am.
