It was an early start for a walk up the Malverns. Low white cloud, mist and snow removed most colour and contrast from the landscape. A man appeared out of the mist, dressed well for his walk with a shelter and spare clothing in his rucksack, a powerful torch, whistle etc. and told me he’d just fallen into snow drift up to his chin. Continuing up to the highest point on the Malverns, Worcestershire Beacon, I walked along the tops of gullies, following where the wind had blown the snow off the grass and showing where the firm ground was. Beside me was soft white snow filling gullies that I knew from previous walks were about two meters deep. The wind had blown the snow into intriguing patterns, freezing onto blades of grass and whipping around manmade shapes such as benches and the plinth at the top of Worcestershire Beacon. And then it started snowing. Awesome.
