Winter smash and grab

Lime Avenue takes on a completely different feel and this image is stronger in black and white

The last big dump of snow to fall in London was in January 2013 so this week I headed back to the Heath to try and capture some fresh images. Knowing these conditions never last too long in the city my plan was to get as much as I could in the few hours I had before the light faded.

Here are my favourite three from an afternoon’s session, the following morning the snow had all but disappeared so I was happy I got something of familiar subjects in different conditions

Getting the exposure right for such a dark bird against the brightness of the snow took a few attempts but I was happy with the result of this one
You can't be a wildlife photography and not shoot robins when it snows!
