    First snow this winter. Some pleasure to the kid on slope of near hill.
    And building a snow castle and cat.
    Lit by army Petromax, 2 foldable swiss candle lanterns and Coleman Powerhouse.

    Open for more winter lantern pics.

    Even though I’ve developped admiration for Primus and Radius lanterns - Optimus 1200 is my workhorse on any ”expedition”.
    Lightweight, plenty of them here and lots of accessories available.

    Here on ”swamp expedition” with my kid.

    Wonderful winter scenes. I have been praying for snow here but nothing more than "slush" has fallen from the sky. Maybe next year...

    I guess ”grass is always greener somewhere else”: we are a bit fed up with snow already.
    The only good thing with snow is light reflections - bright lantern is even brighter!

    Yes, there has been some more snow and the frost continues, the wind rose a bit this afternoon and the temperature dropped even more, but the days are sunny and the sky is blue.:thumbup:

    It doesn’t look very wintry but short of getting lots of paper doilies for snowflakes I didn’t know what else to do?

    The Chrome Tilley was one of Trevor’s (Shagratork) that David very kindly sent me, but I have only recently been able to spend some time on it ...:oops:

    p.s. It's my cousin's garden as I don't have one

    It's still dark when getting home from work, and since I slept at my girl friend and it came another inch of snow last night, I had to manually showel it away when I got home this afternoon.

    It is actually nice to use an old lantern when working in the dark. It gives a more all around light than a LED torch does, and this Radius 119 actually worked without problems the time I needed it to refurbish the plowed drive way, despite it's being -17C (1F).
    ...the battery of the camera didn't cope... :lol:

    Radius 119 is a real workhorse!

    I like that folding lantern, complete with storage bag and candle holder. Great, I want one!
