It Snowed


Sheep in Saddleworth, Fuji X-T2, 18-135mm, ISO100, f/10.0, 1/100″

The weather forecasters managed to get it right (almost) and it snowed at the weekend. What they didn’t quite get right was the volume of snow. The 10-20cm of predicted was more like 5cm. And if your reading this from Buffalo or NYC, 5cm is sufficient to bring the UK to a halt.

Despite the shallow snowfall, it was enough to transform the landscape. I headed up onto the hills at the top of our village and found this group of sheep sheltering together from the weather.

Hope you had a good weekend.

Yet another snow scene for this Friday’s image I’m afraid. It’s another of the images I shot a few weeks back and I seriously need to get out to shoot some new material. Unfortunately, the weather still isn’t good whenever I have some spare time. Fingers crossed for tomorrow when I will try again.

Anyway, I do like this image and though it would be a nice one to share.

Have a great weekend everyone.

In all my dashing around today I almost forgot to post my Friday image. I quite like the discipline of trying to create and post an image a week. I know others seem to manage one or more a day but I have too much else on to be able to make such a commitment. I think creating 1 image a week that I am happy to share is a good goal.

I shot this one almost 2 years ago on a trip to Norway. This was shot from the Hertigruten boat (I think it was the Troll Fjord). These provide a ferry service around the coast although it’s quite a bit more luxurious that this suggests. I think this was somewhere before we reached the Lofoten Islands. I came across the image whilst starting to clear out some of my many images and took a few minutes (about an hour really) to process it.

It was captured on a Panasonic GF1 with a Panasonic 45-200mm lens.

Have a great weekend.
