A sunset from Shropshire. View is from ‘Pole Bank’ on the ‘Longmynd’ plateau (South Shropshire Hills) facing South during Winter snows. I waited a long time to get this shot, this is a result of an treacherous climb to this spot. It’s not high altitude, but a nightmare in these conditions without crampons. I spent the whole day struggling through snowdrifts with a heavy bag/tripod just waiting and hoping that I’d get a decent sky at the end of it. I don’t think this image really does the scene any justice though.
This plateau and the surrounding hills are designated AONB (Area Of Natural Beauty) and are also of special scientific interest as they are amongst some of the oldest geological rock formations in the UK. On this particular evening I’d never seen them look quite so beautiful when dusted with snow. The ‘icing on the cake’ so to speak.
