Unless there is snow or ice in a photograph it is very hard to get a sense of how cold the conditions are. I made this shot in minus 6 degrees made to feel many times colder due to the wind chill. I had spied these fence posts amongst the dunes at the Don estuary many times before and had decided to get my photograph there as the sun setting behind lit up the dune grasses which contrasted beautifuly with a truly menacing snow storm moving down the coast towards me. There was so many layers and colours of clouds in the sky I had a feeling that an ultra long exposure would work very well. I set up (teeth chattering) and made two shots before getting back to the warmth of the car. If I had started a third exposure I reckon I would have been hit with the snow before it finished.

Worth the effort David, love the effect with the long exposure and the contrast in colours here, very well done, Bill.

Great movement in the clouds! It certainly doesn't look that cold though...
