Photographer's Note

So I spent another enjoyable day out in the Lake District today enjoying the winter conditions. I had just climbed up the face to the right of this picture. As I clambered over the cornice I came face to face with a guy and his EOS 20D on a tripod. I had my camera slung over my shoulder as I climbed, clipped to my rucksack with a carabiner as I like to always have it handy. Within yards I bumped into another guy and chatted to him and he noticed my lens. "I have that lens" he said and showed me his 20D. And we discussed the qualities of L series glass. And lastly there was the guy you can see on the left of this picture who was lugging around a Hasselblad on a hefty tripod.

So it seems I am not the only one attracted to the beauty of the Lakeland hills in the snow.

It was beautifully sunny and the sky was wonderfully clear. What I couldn't work out was why I have not seen any of these guys over the last few weeks up there. Although it was a nice day I didn't think the light was as dramatic and the pictures as good as when the skies have been brooding and dark. Is there something they know that I don't? Or do I just go out in all weathers?!
