A winter's dawn on Higger Tor with a hail storm approaching from the Mam Tor Ridge.

There was a 50mph wind with a numbing temperature attached to it, but I wanted a shot of that hail storm coming at me over the ridge. The tripod was weighted down with the camera rucksack and I had the one chance to the picture before the leading edge of the storm began to put water spots on the 0.75 Lee Soft grad I'd chosen to balance the exposure.
Then as the storm arrived it was a quick dash to Shelter Rock over on the left and five minutes of excruciating chilblains.
