In Pictures: Frost and fog herald chilly start to the week

From ice-coated sheep to misty coastal views, but with a burst of sunshine from some early flowering daffodils.

It was a frosty start to the week for many across the country after clear skies overnight that gave many a great view of the rare super blood wolf moon eclipse.

But the ice and fog could yet turn heavier in some parts of the UK with the Met Office issuing a yellow warning for snow in Scotland from late afternoon and another for ice in Northern Ireland from 9pm. The ice warning will spread to the rest of the country in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
