Poole Park Lake in the Ice & Snow – February 2018

A few photos from an early morning trip to look at the ice at Poole Park, Poole, Dorset. The day before this we'd had a little bit of snow, which then stuck to ice that was already there. When I visited the Park there was hardly anyone about, and it was a very magical...
