My Dad and I found a country road adjacent to the main Glenshane Road and the 20 min's spent there on March 22nd 2013 I shall never forget, hands down one of my personal finest Winter memories from this year and from all time. The blowing snow was absolutely unreal, great blowing veils of white would whip down the mountain, over the fields, and across the road at high speed and standing in it felt like being in a sand blaster. The instant I got out from the van to get a few shots I felt like I was vulnerable and under constant attack, the sensation of thousands of ice crystals blasting my skin and into my eyes was sore and disorientating. At times I couldn't actually see at all and could also see nothing through the camera viewfinder as my world had just turned white, I recall shooting ''arrgrggg'hh'' in desperation as I tried to get images.

I would return to the van, wipe the lens, then get back out and try again, I had to get some images of this spectacular dynamic severe weather moment or I would never forgive myself so with the 100-400mm lens on I went back out yet again, side stepped down the country road slipping and sliding and turned around to face the van as waves of airborne snow blew across the road at high velocity, the view I had looking back towards Dad's van was unforgettable, at times the van vanished from view and even the front of my telephoto lens vanished into a cloud of white, this is one of several images showing that view. You can see Dad's arm out the side of the window getting footage of me using the video camera however the footage didn't work out as snow hit the lens within sec's however I still used it anyway for the memories, 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.
