Sometimes as a landscape photographer you have to appreciate the grandeur of your surroundings without being able to view it through a lens, and just forget about any shots you might be missing.
This was the case when driving up to Buttermere on Saturday morning for a workshop. Icing sugar hills, dispersing cloud and that wintery combination of soft pinks and blues. Just no time to stop and capture it.
The snow had fallen to a lower level overnight than I’d expected, but the drive over Honister Pass was unaffected and despite Buttermere being more overcast than elsewhere in the Lake District we had a decent morning. A few bursts of light, soft reflections and good cloud definition.
