If you came looking for Fred or Wilma Flintstone, then you’ve come to the wrong place :)!
East Anglia and Norfolk in England have many flint stones that can be found littering the countryside. Flints have been used since the stone-age to make sharp-edged weapons like axes and arrow-heads, as well as in the creation of sparks to produce a fire. The flints found in our local area take on peculiar shapes, like the one below which looks like a horseshoe.
The temperature across East Anglia touched a chilly -6C over the last two nights. Winter is well and truly here in Cambridge. The rapid drop in temperature meant some great opportunities for photography across my place of work. The pictures below are all from my iPhone 4S. As always you can click on the pictures to see and appreciate these flowers of ice.
All pictures with an iPhone 4S (it was too cold to carry anything else!). The images were post-processed in Color Effex Pro 3.0 plugin inside Adobe Lightroom 4.3
