Old Man Winter swooped into much of northern Europe this week. His cold, fierce scream bringing plummeting temperatures and snow. Like obedient children we scramble for the B&W effect.
He's not sticking around for most of us, except in the far north of course. This was just a test. He'll be away again for another month or so before returning with a vengeance.
Across the social media it seemed people were getting out and getting getting cold in this brief taste of winter. Familiar trails and views smeared in magical white, suddenly new and interesting again.
Cue a crap load of monochromatic masterpieces across the blogosphere. Bring. It. On.
