WINNER of the Naturalists Britain Group’s Snow Scenes Challenge

The sun sets on Christmas Eve 2010 in Cheltenham, England.

Huge icicles glow in the golden sunset. The icicles have grown to over a metre in length thanks to the relentless freezing weather the UK has seen this Christmas.

  • Thanks Kylie. I was in two minds whether to include the window or not, think it paid off though.

    A super beautiful shot, but could you submit this image to the Naturalist Britain Group BEFORE entering it into the Snowscene Challenge please?

    Many thanks,
    Sandi :))x

  • Sorry Sandra, but at the time I submitted you weren’t accepting artworks. Anyway, I’ve re-submitted so managed to make the deadline, thank you for the heads up!
