Night time snow chasing on December 5th 2011, at ground level in Maghera it was a horrible dark rainy night but as we got to the bottom of Glenshane Pass it changed to sleet, as we climbed in elevation it was like someone flicked a switch and it began snowing like crazy, it was almost blizzard-like in nature with dense snow with big flakes blowing across the road making a wall of snow which dropped visibility down to a matter of feet which was quite alarming because I could barely see the road at all and what side of the road I was on for that matter, this was quite frightening, especially knowing the deadly reputation of this place, then the wheels lost traction and the car began to slide. We pulled into another lay by and watched the snow falling, it looked beautiful which stirred up that childhood fascination of snow within us all. After half an hour of constant snow it finally stopped and the sky cleared so I got out for a few exposures. That's the main Glenshane road with the snow shining under the Moon with Orion on view, the white and pink clouds where the tops of the snow storm retreating into the distance which had caused us such anxiety on the way up, now it was simply breathtaking, read the full image report from this night here. * All images are available for sale in the form of photo prints, canvas or digital files for licensing, if you are interested in a purchase simply drop me an email.
