Guernsey in the snow

18 January 2013 Anni Bisson

The Bailiwick was covered in a blanket of snow overnight.

Islanders woke to a wintry scene this morning as the Bailiwick had a dusting of snow. With temperatures dropping to zero, locals grabbed their cameras and headed out to capture the beautiful islands.

Anni Bisson took this shot of the West Coast beaches from the top of the Guet at 8.30am.

'I was out walking my dog. I did go up there especially as I thought it would make a good photo,' she said.

The last significant snowfall in the island was in 2009, when eight inches fell overnight. It was the most snow the Channel Islands had seen for 20 years.

Mike Archer captured this image of a rural cottage in the lanes above Moulin Huet, a bay made famous by Impressionist painter Auguste Renoir in the 19th Century, on his way to work.

Guernsey residents Vanessa Netherton and Pete de Mouilpied also snapped scenes in the rural parishes.

Guernsey's sister islands, Herm, Alderney and Sark all saw snow overnight with the school in Alderney closing for the day. These shots were taken in Alderney earlier today.
