Usha Venkat: “On a rainy and chilly day we took a day from our vacation in Paris, to enjoy a quiet medieval town named Provins. It fitted the bill perfectly with medieval buildings and a stunning fort. As we were finishing our day tour, walking back to the train station, I noticed a snail that was keeping itself warm from the elements in a leafy home. The creature’s ability to shelter itself was amazing and brought warmth to my heart.”
Christopher Ma: “This picture was taken during my rock climbing camping trip with my friends in Skaha Bluffs, Penticton, BC, Canada. After a long day of rock climbing, my friends and I sat down and enjoyed the sunset. “
Jim Lacy: “Good viewing for cats and dogs alike. Stanley (the cat) and Tom (the dog) drawn to the log burner, like watching your favourite soap on the telly.”
Jenny Downing: “So mesmerised by those dancing flames I could almost feel my forehead melting.”
Elisa Decker sent in this picture taken in Ithaca, New York.
Gill Gymer: “This iguana was basking in the warmth of the sun in Curacao, in the Caribbean. As a cold-blooded creature, it needed to warm up to be ready to go hunting.”
Suzanne Senior: “Snow boots keeping us all warm on a bed made of ice in the snow domes in Tromso, Norway.”
Claire Lewis: “Warmth from an embrace…”
Jane Sayliss: “My son and grandson enjoying a winter walk on a Scottish beach whilst our trusty mini incinerator burns driftwood in the foreground. We always take it whenever we visit the beach and enjoy toasted marshmallows and hot chocolate over the open fire.”
Zara Liaqat: “From the fleeting warmth of Fall colours to the allure of a blooming Winter.”
Rachael Blakey: “Opposites – an alternative way to project light and warmth.”
Jesper Roos: “Bonfire night 2019. The big local celebration in York had been cancelled due to flooding, so we made do at home.”
Nick Sanyal: “My wife and I were staying at a hotel in Bend, Oregon, USA, that had a fine selection of local beer, cider and wine. I opted for the cider and we relaxed on the heated patio next to a cozy fire pit. The fire was warm, the cider too, and this picture captures all.”
