Blizzard Affric   Glen Affric, Highlands, Scotland

In order to lend this heavy snow storm some texture it was necessary to render the driven snow in a form that it could at least be seen for what it was, namely a vicious winter squall of freezing snow in front of a tree covered hillside and a Scots Pine island with secluded birch trees.  I chose an ISO of around 1000 as sufficient depth of field was imperative and a shutter speed of about 1/40 second or so to render the driven snow as short white dashed lines.  I think it captures the mood beautifully, sombre, desolate and cold
