Nikon D700, several images stitched in Photoshop.
It was early December 2010 and I’d slept in the car, near the start of the walk. During the night the winds rose and stormy weather buffeted the car. When I woke, to fresh snowfall, it was dark and grey with more snow showers moving in.
However, I noticed a break in the cloud cover on the horizon, so with a surge of optimism, I trudged up the hill. The sun rose before I had reached the top so I captured this view on the way up. When I got to the top, the view of the Old Man was shrouded by the fast moving clouds and took some time before it cleared.
Little did I realise that the poor weather was just a taste of things to come. The next two weeks brought considerable snowfall and record breaking low temperatures.
If you’d like to see more of my images from that rather epic winter trip to the Highlands (or if you require a different size to what’s specified here), please visit my website at www.bananapancake.com. Alternatively, a similar image features in my ‘Wild Britain’ calendar.
