Winter Arrives

13th December 2011
Had a trip up to the Lakes on Friday - the visits during the summer really pay off at this time of year as you know exactly where to go and what will be safe to get in and out of. I visited Kelly Hall Tarn in August for a dawn shoot - its very close to the road - about 10 mins walk. Found it quite difficult this time to get decent foreground interest as the heavy rain had flattened much of the surrounding vegetation.
I was looking for snow on the distant hills (the Coniston range) and the 'Winters Tarn' shot was exactly what I had planned for. A little more sky interest would have improved it but I think the mainly blue sky adds to the wintry feel.
