This is the last one I'll post from here and probably my favourite one.


The lighting up here this day was nothing short of incredible with a passing storm front it was changing dramatically minute by minute from really dark to really light, dappled light, and pretty much everything inbetween including driving wind, rain, and hail.


Snow covered Blaven at the rear, and the snow covered peak to the fore would completely vanish for long periods before reappearing looking dramatic as ever.


This shot was a case of setting up the shot, waiting and watching for the best conditions to (maybe) appear where you could at least see everything.

This was the resulting image with all the peaks illuminated, the house, and the foreground rocks underneath a really powerful sky, in a location like this it's very tempting to just snap away but waiting can often be far more productive.
