We had snow yesterday and during the night but it did not amount to too much. Today was a lovely sunny start to the day and so I decided to walk from home to Osmaston. It was certainly a cold one. Very few walkers were around which was quite surprising as it was such a nice day and also so soon after christmas. I walked to Osmaston via Osmaston Lane End and the Peak Gateway Caravan Park. The pond in Osmason was partially frozen but two ducks had decided that it was good enough for them. The snow made the village look very pretty but the sun was low and therefore cast many shadows. On my way to Wyaston several dark clouds filled the sky but soon cleared to leave a sunny and cold day once more. Towards the end of the walk I had good views across to the Weaver Hills. That will be a walk another day.
