More Snow in the Peak District

We had more snow in the Peaks last night with more forecast for later today. There is a pretty even 6 to 8 inches in the valleys and more on the tops. Lots of local roads are shut including some major routes like the Cat and Fiddle, Axe Edge, Buxton to Ashbourne road, Snake Pass. The temperature has stayed low since the first snow on the 18th December so it's just building up.

Great conditions for photography if you can get out in it! If the sun's shining take some big views, if it's dull look for small parts of the landscape like rocks, trees and icicles and make something out of these. The dull lighting will actually help to keep the brightness range down so that digital sensors can handle it.

Have fun.
