Alport Castles

Alport Castles, apparently the UK's largest landslip though that appears to be open to debate.


What I do know if I've been wanting to get a good picture of this for years now and aimed to get one last winter in the snow and as the sun sets in the right place in winter it was even better.


However, unfortunately by the time I had time to shoot it in Jan/Feb the snow had all a year quickly passes.


I have to say I had pre visualised the shot from the position but with a little more snow, it's always good to have a vision to know what you want. However I knew that morning the chances are the snow may be patchy and started to visualise another shot of contrasts. I couldn't change the weather conditions and after a lung busting climb to the top made the most of the conditions and really pleased with the way they was with a warm colours right hand side of the image contrasting with the cool snow left hand side of the image.
