Photographing Cornwall in snow

It has been a tough winter here in Cornwall. The whole county was covered in snow multiple times in the past few months, which only meant one thing: lots of new opportunities for unique photographs!

LIZARD POINT:  I didn't quite believe anyone who said it was going to be snowing in Cornwall. It's a very rare thing in this part of the country, not just because of very wet and mild weather conditions but because we are surrounded by the sea. This means that even if it snows, the snow never settles. 

Despite this, the first thing I did in the morning was check the weather forecast. It turned out I was very wrong... I packed my camera bags and rushed out towards the Lizard Point in hope that I could arrive before the snow melts down. It wasn't until I reached a couple of miles off the location that I saw the snow, and there was a lot of it!  As I arrived to the coastal path, I was amazed - I have never seen anything like it before. It was very peaceful and quiet, but at the same time, there were strong gusts of wind pushing the snow around, with very dark moody skies.  I had my camera out long before I arrived to the location, and by that time it was covered in snow! I started snapping away running back and forth as the light kept changing.
