Saddleworth Winter IV - the Moor on 4th Feb 2015

Saddleworth Moor after snow, February 2015

These photos were taken on Saddleworth Moor on 4th February 2015. We had to wait about an hour for the weather to break and provide some light and shade. We came up to our knees in snow as we waded through heather and bog to reach our vantage points. Temperature about -2 degrees C. Grouse had left tracks in the snow, unworried by nearby traffic on the "Isle Of Skye Road" over the Moor. It was marvellous up there!
