Photography corner: Walking in the White

Posted: January 17, 2015 by tallbloke in Photography, weather

I took time out this morning to go on a walk round (and over) Baildon moor, with some friends and aquaintances. The weather was a mixture of sunshine and snow showers, at the top o the moor, it was a bit of a blizzard:


We were caught in another snow shower as we descended Sconce lane.


By the time we got to our lunch stop, things had greatly improved.


With a fine view out over Airedale

    That “virtual snow” looks indistinguishable from the real thing.

    As cold as that Rog, think I’ll stay down, south and inside, not that the tops hereabouts are walking distance or open to the public. Nice photos.

  3. Stephen Richards says:

    That red umbrela looks a little out of place among a group of pioneer, daredevils. Fashion item? 🙂

    The red umbrella is mine! Best item I took on the walk. It kept the icy wind out of my ears and the snow off my non-waterproof down jacket. Everyone else was jealous.

    It’s a Golite. 8oz of good design and high quality materials. It’s impossible to find one for sale.

    Some more shots from the walk, taken by Jonathan, who bravely took a proper camera out for the day.

  5. Graeme No.3 says:

    Rather than a red umbrella you should have taken Dr. David “No Snow” Viner to improve the conditions.

    It can be seen that at the time of high solar activity accelerates circulation. Ie. highs and lows quickly move from west to east. Now, the activity of circulation slowed down immediately. This will change the weather in Europe. Lows over Scandinavia will be stuck for long.

    There really is some good walking in West Yorkshire. We usually go around the Huddersfield area with living here. Found this site excellent for helping to pick some new routes.
