Two weeks ago I was stuck at home with a bad case of man-flu. Not feeling to well, but still trying to do some work is not always the best way to shake an illness. The sun was shining and it looked like a great day, thus Debbie suggested that I take a break and go outside for a while. I grabbed the camera and headed down the road as I had spotted some snow drops a few days earlier and though I would see what they looked like. The sun was in the perfect position, streaming down the road and framing the snow drop with a nice warm light. The below image is the shot I was the happiest with.
As I am sure it is with most photographers, you know when you have the shot. I was pretty happy once I saw the final result on the screen.
Last week I submitted it to the Telegraph and it got selected to be included in their gallery named “Signs of early spring in Britain“.
It was hard to believe that a week later, that same stretch of road, would be covered in snow.
Even though the snow was still on the ground, that same magical light made its appearance a few days later.
February really is an under-rated month and it did not disappoint.
