Due to the snow fall, the college i was supposed to be working at has temporarily closed, so i thought i may as well head out with my camera for a while. I decided to walk around the nearby fields, and left it fairly late as i hoped i might get a good sunset. Alas, even though it was sun interspersed with snow showers, the snow came at just the wrong time.
The snow was deeper than anything we’ve had around here for years, perhaps 14-16 inches (35-40 cm) Not deep compared to some countries, but not bad for here.
To start with i decided to try using the Lensbaby Composer http://www.lensbaby.com/ with the pinhole optic. I’ve not had much opportunity to use it recently, and thought an aged looking pinhole photo may look good in these conditions.
Due to the snow i decided it wasn’t such a good idea to be swapping lenses over too often, so changed back to my regular zoom lens for the rest of the photos.
In a brighter moment i captured a nice detail of berries in the hedgerow.
It started to snow again so i went into the nearby woodland for a little shelter. The sky started turning pink through the trees so i grabbed a shot hoping it was going to be the start of a good sunset. Unfortunately it was clouded over again within a couple of minutes.
