Just back from a photo shoot at the Rococo Gardens in Gloucestershire on a beautiful sunny morning. A great surprise to wake up and see snow on the ground. Snow scenes are one of my favourites to photograph.
After last years snow it looks very light, but I still got one of my favourite sounds, the crunch of snow under the feet.
Painswick Rococo Gardens has one of the best and largest collection of snowdrops in the UK. I find this garden truly magical as it has something to look at all through the seasons, a hidden gem.
James Montgomery said of the snowdrop “The morning star of flowers”
Looking back on my data from last year the snowdrops are a good two weeks early and for a photographer looking really pristine at the moment, with the white petals having no blemishes!
Chaste Snow-drop, venturous harbinger of Spring,
And pensive monitor of fleeting years!”
