For a brief moment in time, the Derbyshire landscape was covered in snow, although it only lasted a few days it certainly brought a smile to my face. I love winter when we get some snow, usually it's wet and quite dour, the colours of dark greys and muddy brown do nothing to lift my spirits.
The day it snowed, we went out for a walk around the local lanes, the light was poor as it was quite late in the afternoon, I just hoped that the following day would be clear, and that I could get to capture a winter landscape in some decent light.
The following day was nothing short of epic, the light was spectacular and had a real alpine feel to it, I headed off to Minninglow Hill resplendent in its white coat. No one had been out before me, and the heavy covering of snow, untouched by human feet. Up on the hilll itself drifts were several feet thick, and I was upto my knees in places. Amazing how the sheep manage to get below the icy layer to get at the grass.
It's kind of special to have an opportunity to shoot in such pristine conditions. I hope you enjoy my images
