Chilltop by Meowgli Chilltop by Meowgli
I was on my way to admire the snowy views from our local high ground when I unfortunately came across a big 'Road Closed' sign.... pfffff, I'm not having that! On I struggled in my little Golf, wheelspinning for a half mile before deciding maybe it wasn't wise to get stranded on a hillside after dark in sub-zero conditions and with no supplies! I did however manage to get far enough along the road to make it to this particular local go-to spot of mine just in time for sundown.

Same location as this shot made back in spring. Might just be a candidate for a seasonscape some day :) One other angle (sans fence) to come from this shoot...

I like this one: that tree here in the upper third sounds like a very good way to make a good landscape picture of a cloudless sunset.

Well composed, well done! =)

mmm sounds like a plan, especially given the crapload of snow it seems Northumberland is getting! was it tricky/expensive? :)

I have a spare set of tyres on 17" alloys, the front tyres needed replacing so I put winter tyres on them, took my 18s off my car and swapped them all over, two winter tyres are about 170 but it was definitely worth it, its STILL white up here, its like living in Iceland! :D

THIS MUCH SNOW/FROST AND THE ROAD IS CLOSED?

oh me oh my! lol salt/sand = traction.. roads should only be closed when the snow drifts are higher then the car!

sweet shot tho Adamsauce! =D

yeah the road hadn't been gritted as it's basically a single track on a hillside in the middle of the countryside... I wasn't the only one to think the 'Road Closed' was a bit excessive - a few people passed by while I was shooting though admittedly I was the only one not in a 4x4! :XD: cheers Danibuns
