Early February 2009 gave Winton a rare experience
- a heavy snowfall. The snow even settled for a while!
There are young people in Winton who have never
seen snow! It doesn't happen often and fortunately local photographer
Chris Downer was ready to brave the cold and record the scene
for posterity. Here is a selection of his pictures. You can see
even more at http://www.geograph.org.uk/search.php?i=5426955.
