Filming in the snow

Filming in the snowWe were out filming yesterday on the north eastern edge of the Brecon Beacons.  This was the view from time to time from the top of ‘Twmpa’, a peak which has the epic English name of ‘Lord Hereford’s Knob’.  The elevation is only 690m, which is hardly high by mountain standards.  Back home in the lowlands though, just a few miles away it was relatively balmy.  At one point I was struggling to get at a lens function and my glove stuck to the velcro of the camera’s rain cover and one thing led to another.  To sort it out speedily I pulled the glove off.  It took a little longer than expected and within 20 seconds or so my fingers were painful and non-functional. I couldn’t get my hands under cover again fast enough.  Just goes to show, don’t take chances with the cold.  The views were worth waiting for, and I include another picture taken when the wind-blown snow and hail mixture had stopped blowing through.  There wasn’t a lot of wildlife to film, though there were a few ravens ‘dancing’ in the sky.  All in all a refreshing day.
