Thanks for the encouraging comments everyone - very much appreciated. I have seen the forecasts of the 'Beast from the East' too, so hopefully there'll be some striking images to snap

Cheers

The second image is the best shot for me. The black background makes the subject stand out nicely.

The last one makes me smile.

Best wishes, Kris.

The frost shots are very good but #8 the mandarin duck really made me smile. It's a superb shot but I can't help thinking it was a bird designed by a committee rather than natural selection

Let me add my praise to the superlatives already heaped on this very enjoyable set of images. Well worth the cold morning bike ride Mat.

No, not really. You need to be careful about taking a cold camera back into the warm as condensation is not good for cameras.
Also batteries do not last as long in extreme cold - but I do mean really cold weather. The answer is to carry a spare, close to your body to keep it warm. Often an apparently flat battery will burst back into life once it has warmed up.
My K-5 has been down to -18C and survived just fine, even when it was covered in frozen snow!

I would add that the most important thing is not to take your lens off when you bring the camera in until it's had a good few hours to warm up.

Seal the entire camera, lens and all still attached, into a ZIP-Lock bag. The moisture will condense on the bag instead of on/in the camera. Once it has all warmed up after a few hours, you can open the bag.
Putting a desiccant (moisture sucking product) or some white rice in the bag will help, but isn't really necessary.
(btw, rice tends to be dusty, so I would probably only do that with a dust resistant camera).
