27/11/17 - Holme Moss

Another wet and windy morning, but I'm up so I might as well get out. Once the wet weather kit was on I drove up to the car park at Holme Moss overlooking the last of the summer wine village of Holmfirth. The plan was to walk up to Black Hill trig point in the dark, see what sunrise images I could get with the trig point in the foreground and then go hunting for shots of  Mountain Hares with some snow in the background. I arrived at the car park and as I opened the door the wind ripped the door handle from my hand and the driving rain wet the drivers seat instantly. I wrapped up and started heading over the rain soaked moors blinded by the reflection off the rain from the head torch. There were pockets of snow hidden in sheltered gullies but nothing like what I had seen up here the previous day. About half a mile into my walk I coughed and felt a shooting pain down my back (old back injury), so sensibly I returned back to the car as this is definitely not the place to go into spasms. Once back at the safety of the car I hung around for sunrise, but I needn't have bothered as there was no image to be had here today.
