Bodmin Moor in the snow
The “holy grail” of snow photography in Cornwall is snow on the beach, preferably with a nice clean wave breaking too. Sadly this is a rare occurrence as the sea tends to keep the land adjacent to it relatively warm and this snowfall was no exception: my local beaches were denuded of the white stuff, despite a near blizzard the day before. (here’s a link to my photo of said blizzard on Facebook.)
Plan B is to head for higher ground and in Cornwall that means Bodmin Moor. I love this place, it’s so desolate, especially in winter, even though it’s just a few miles inland from my home in Newquay. The highlight of the morning was when I chanced across a herd of shaggy cattle wandering along the side of the road, munching on shoots of grass sticking out from the snow, like a herd of bison on the Great Plains. I do have a vivid imagination!
