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 I’ve always wanted in this location!!! Then, Cathy said, I can see snow! I personally couldn’t, 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 couldn’t see the snow… Anyway as I made my way to the location (one that I’ve shot numerous times even licensed cards and image to the estate) my excitement became engulfed by a blizzard! Anyway I still haven’t got the shot I’m visualising, but will keep trying with this composition until I eventually get closer to what I see in my mind’s eye!
