15 minutes before this shot was made, I was sat watching an incredible sunset developing. There was a sizable gap on the horizon, that would allow the low winter sun to illuminate the very promising low and high clouds and with plenty of blue sky showing through the gaps, the colour was going to be fantastic, just what Iíve always wanted in this location!!! Then, Cathy said, I can see snow! I personally couldnít, maybe my excitement blurred the reality. But as I made sure the kit was ready and the obligatory farewells to the family (they were off for tea and cake to escape the cold, whilst I did the sunset) I couldnít see the snow... Anyway as I made my way to the location (one that Iíve shot numerous times even licensed cards and image to the estate) my excitement became engulfed by a blizzard! Anyway I still havenít got the shot Iím visualising, but will keep trying with this composition until I eventually get closer to what I see in my mindís eye!
Incidentally, I used the opportunity to shoot some comparison images for an article Iím writing for Amateur Photography magazine on Polarisation... more information coming soon....
