From a trip heading north in the frost and snow

This posting pre-dates the previous two in practice but I had not had a chance to work on the images I took until now.  Just after the new year (but before the big snow) I drove up through the country (M5/M6).  The previous night had seen some of the lowest temperatures.  Close to Worcester we stopped at the service station and while the others were having some food and drink I was out with the camera catching the extreme frost on the trees.  Sadly some of the best views across the countryside were while I was driving!

Arriving close to Burnley the snow was far thicker and continued to fall most of the time I was there.  There was little opportunity to get out to take photographs sadly but I did manage to get a few.

I liked the looming wind turbines here looking quite ghostly in the snow.  Equally the next image is of Pendle Hill.  The summit is the lightest part of the white that is not actually sky!

The light was going when I got this but it was a lovely scene.

I hope to go that way again later in the year for some images in better visibility but without the snow.  While it makes for interesting images the driving was not good at times.  The run back – without any images – was  not bad as most people seemed to have heeded advice the stay off the roads.
