Whenever the weather is playing ball, I frequently gaze out and hope I can get out to take some photos. It doesn’t always work out that way – usually we have other plans. But the other week we had snowing falling on the weekend, so it was the prime opportunity to go for a snowy photography walk.
N was really excited that it had snowed, and we got all dressed up in outdoor gear. Then we opened the front door to see his dad coming. The offer of going to have break time over at his cousins’ house meant I was left high and dry to go out for a walk on my own. After all the snow excitement N ended up not even going out to play before the snow melted.
I initially walked out with my brother who’d turned up to do some metal detecting. Supposedly it’s good in the snow because the grass is compacted and therefore better to get signals off. But we parted ways and I headed through the farmyard and out to the public footpath up our fields.
I’d expected the ground to be a lot more solid, but it was still quite wet under foot…not helped by being at the bottom of the hill and having had farm vehicles and cattle through it at times.
There wasn’t that much snow about, but just enough to have some pretty snowy shots given the right framing.
Noone else had been out in the fields which is always satisfying. So often we find random walkers not following the footpath, but I didn’t see anyone while out.
I was only out for an hour but it was plenty long enough to get out and enjoy the fresh cold air and snowy views, before heading home in time for lunch.
Bizarrely considering N had been so keen to have snow, he wasn’t concerned that by lunchtime most of it had melted, before the rain came and washed the rest away.
Did you have much snow? Do you hole up at home or get out in it?
