52 Week Photography Challenge Week 2: Cold

I knew there was a reason I'd be writing this post a little late. 

It wasn't that I wasn't inspired by the theme exactly, it's just that I was determined that this linky would be my motivation for using my lovely new DSLR camera to capture the pre-chosen themes, so I was waiting for an opportunity.

Whilst it hasn't been quite as warm as summer of late, in my mind it still hasn't been cold. Thinking I couldn't hold on much longer, I made the girls pose for a photoshoot after school on Friday. To cover the theme, they were sporting their brand new kitten 'scarf gloves' which I'd picked up in the Accessorize sale.

And then, this happened.

Snow! Can't get much colder than that!

There was quite a flurry coming down at one point, and I was a bit worried about getting my precious 'posh' camera too wet. So I switched to my iphone, and I have to say that still does a pretty good job too, outdoors. What do you think?!

Really can't beat the crispness of my new camera for close-ups though:

This one below was also taken on my phone, and even without a selfie stick - not bad if I do say so myself!

I've put all of the photos I took (motto = one is never enough) into a mini movie, feel free to have a quick watch:

Linking up with Mummy B who is setting these challenges - why don't you pop over to see what the others came up with?
