A dusting of snow…..

A couple of friends came up for the day during last weekend, so i took them for a drive into the Peak District of Derbyshire, an area neither of them know.

The wonderfully changeable weather we have in this country meant we ended up with low cloud and snow (a week later it’s 9c and sunny)

Along the route i decided to take them down Winnats Pass, a short steep drop through the limestone to Castleton, a place well worth visiting. The pass itself had a wonderful dusting of snow that gave us a view that just had to be photographed.

This photo has great texture to it, and makes me think of those perfect pencil drawings some people can do.

About PurpleT

Much of my photography is art and documentary. I try to capture a scene as i see it in my mind, whether that be black and white, colour, or somewhere in between. I try to make an interesting, and/or attractive image from what i see around me, not just what would be expected, but also subjects that would be seen boring, mundane, or ugly by many. But they all have an interest as art photography. I have also spent nearly twenty years working as a life model, then the human figure in art is very important to me, and is something i try to bring into my work at times.
