WINTER bit this weekend after warnings of snow and then ice from the Met Office.

Undeterred by this members of the Powys Count Times Camera Club have been out and about taking some spectacular scenes.

Camera Cub member Martin Jones pointed out: "It's getting near that time of year, so here's one of Rudolph's young distant cousins."

From snowy Llyn Clywedog to bracing winds in the Elan Valley, here are some scenes to enjoy but in front of the fire.

Please keep sending in your pictures to the Powys Count Times Camera Club.

Good quality cameras on mobile phones and tablets mean everyone is capable of capturing a stunning shot that can compete with those taken through an expensive lens. The Powys County Times Camera Club is open to anyone with an eye for a good photo.
