Taken on the morning of Saturday 23.03.2013, this series has a verse to go with it that sums up my feelings about this winter perfectly. You can find it here:-
If the images look a little like pastel drawings that's because it never stopped snowing during the walk, tiny, tiny snowflakes that you can see hurtling across in several of the pictures. They were driven by a vicious easterly wind, a lazy wind that couldn't be bothered to go round you but cut straight through you instead. The wind created some interesting shapes as you can see in versions 5, 9 & 15.
I had to put my camera's raincoat on and that meant looking at the viewfinder through wet plastic, always a hit and miss affair. Add to that wet, frozen fingers and the difficulty of trudging through deep snow you can see that it was a photographic adventure/lottery. The dogs absolutely loved it of course.
As always the opening image is not necessarily my favourite but the one I think makes the best thumbnail. This one also has the 'Aaaaaaaah' factor with Helga doing her very best cute pose! Anyway here they are, a documentary record of the second day of Spring in West Yorkshire. Thanks for looking and I hope that you like at least some of them. Do tell which you like best.
