A slight lie in the title I'm afraid as I'll now explain...

Curbar Edge, a fantastic easy to reach location in the Peak District popular for photographers for obvious reasons.

Now I try not to use the cliche "One moment it was perfect weather and within seconds I was rushing for my camera trying to capture the amazing changing light" I find it a phrase quite overused and I quite like to think I'm ready there waiting for that change with the camera already set up.

However in this instance I had arrived at Curbar and it was pretty perfect clear blue skies, but just as I got to the top of the edge I could see dark menacing skies full of snow.

It quickly swept over me and as I was parked at the top of the hill in a Focus RS (Not good in snow!) I made a rush down the hill trying to capture what I could at the same time. If you look closely enough you can see those clear blue skies in the distance.

I named the picture so because it looks like hell was raining down on Curbar Village below.
