Snow has gripped Britain's mountains as autumn turns to winter on high ground.
The last few days have seen storms and high levels of precipitation across Britain and on high ground this has included plenty of snowfall.
Mountain forecasts suggest the winds will ease a little, but it will still be very cold, with the Lake District seeing some snow and land freezing above 800 metres, while Snowdonia will see snow above 750 m and the west Highlands will be white above 550 m.
Those venturing outdoors may find now a very good time to invest in winter jackets
But while the cold may provide challenges for walkers, many will enjoy this and people keen to put on their ski boots
may be excited at the thought of this being the start of another snowy winter with lots of fun to be had on the slopes.
The snow in Cumbria has already led to problems for those driving to their favourite mountain haunts, as it has caused the Kirkstone Pass to be closed.
