STOPPED BY SNOW (05/01/10)

image                                          We left Kingswear at first light. After a beautiful day yesterday, today it has taken four hours to cover one hundred miles. As the weather is considerably worse the further north we go I decided to stop here at Strensham and see what tomorrow brings. To pass the time have taken a few snaps of the car park.

Keep warm, all the best.

  3. Some nice scenic places not far away. Bridgenorth on the River Severn, Ludlow (nice castle)and Stourport to just name a few.

  4. You are going to wear that star filter out ;)
    Well, at least you got a change from that everlasting rain. Very wise to stay put for a while until this lot passes over.

  5. You are near to me, but I don't think that there is a chance of meeting you, cause we can't with all snow around us.

  7. Beautiful shots Adrian. I've been planning to take a run up to the mountains and get some snow shots, but haven't so far. Your post has inspired me so perhaps I will do that in the morning. Take care.

  8. Well, I'm glad you stopped rather than pushing on and risking life and limb!

    I love these shots. My favorite is the last one with the red blurs!

  10. I think you may be waiting it out for a while there Adrian. The snow is hitting with a vengence. Take care mate.

  11. Tony, she does when it's fresh, when it gets a crust she thinks it's grabbing her feet when she breaks through.
    Trevor thanks, was thinking of backtracking a bit for Slimbridge, will see in the morning.
    John, yes it will get taken out of the camera bag and forgotten eventually.
    Bob, No coming down with a vengeance now.
    Tricia, thanks, look forward to seeing your photos.
    Penny, was hoping for more light trails but not many cars moving.
    Pauline, mine was second hand but I don't think they are very expensive. You can do it in post production by using the brush tool, takes a while mind.
    Keith, that's why I stopped BMW drivers coming past at 90mph, they are brain dead!

  13. Never has a carpark looked so pretty. I can imagine a spoof meme . . . Car Park Tuesday. I expect lots would join. I'll have to think of some challenging angles.
