There was a lot of ice on the various lakes at Whisby Nature Park this morning.

A closeup of one of last week's VW Camper vans.
This is the result of a first experiment with online photo editing site pixlr-o-matic, which offers a big selection of Instagram/Hipstamatic style filters for those of us trying to process regular camera photos with our PCs. (Instagram and Hipstamatic are apps for certain types of smart phone only).
Pixlr-o-matic offers the widest choice of filters I've seen and has a nice WYSISYG interface so you can whizz through the options, seeing the results on your own photo as you go. I've just noticed it's also available as a Chrome web app so that's next to try in the Chrome browser.

Gate leading to St Peter's Church from Kettle's Yard, Cambridge.
Another window looking out from the first floor at Kettle's Yard, Cambridge.
Curiously, the opposite wall is always free of ants :-)

VW camper vans on Sunday.
The vans stretched along northern, eastern and southern shores of the Brayford Pool, Lincoln.
Another pic from Sunday.

This is the view onto Northampton St, Cambridge from the first floor of the modernist extension of Kettle's Yard.
Entry to Kettle's Yard is down the narrow passageway towards the right of the picture. This puts you into the lounge/dining area of the house in the centre of the picture. The walls are decorated with early 20th century artworks and sculptures are dotted around. There is also a minimal amount of furniture to make the place habitable.
Upstairs, the theme continues. But keep walking and this level rambles on, eventually opening into a large space - the upper floor of the modernist extension.
Throughout are artworks, sculptures, furniture and books (visitors are allowed to handle the books).
There is also a third level in the roof space of the house.
Kettle's Yard was the Cambridge home of Jim Ede and his wife Helen, created by knocking four cottages together in 1956. In 1966 Ede gave the house and collection to Cambridge University.
It combines the best of art gallery, library and historic house in a very relaxed and informal atmosphere.
Visitor numbers are limited so it's never crowded.
There are lots of helpful staff members on hand who can explain the artworks and the house to visitors.

Just opening in the Arboretum.
Zooming out reveals another couple of flowers opening.
The sun made it look very spring-like, but there was a hard frost and a cold misty start to the day.

The same colour and ground clearance as a Ferrari.
VW Camper Van day at Brayford Pool yesterday.
A lovely example of this design classic.
An orange VW Camper Van paired with a Chopper bicycle.

Light snow fell yesterday afternoon, not really settling anywhere. By dark there was a thin white layer over everything. Today has seen spring-like flurries: one minute a snowstorm and the next blue skies and bright sunshine.
