Garth Hill Snow Jan 21

In January 2021, South Wales was dusted with a covering of snow, the first snow fall of the year.  As a photographer, this was too good an opportunity to miss and so I wrapped up warm, slung my Canon 6D over my shoulder and off I went to photograph Garth Hill snow.  My walk took place the day after the main snowfall, when different colours begin to poke through the blanket of snow.  And it is that contrast that gives the image a little more depth, especially if you’ve got some golden evening light.  Heavy blankets of snow tend to be very white with very little depth.  A wonderful two-hour local walk from my home up and around my local playground.
