We have had a really snowy winter in this part of North Yorkshire. This has extended well into March. Last week saw some very heavy snow showers and impressive low temperatures. On March 11th I went to Rosedale Head where at 11am the temperature was still minus 4 celsius with the wind gusting to nearly 50mph and yet the March sun was high in the sky. On the moors it felt like mid winter and even at low levels the temperature struggled to climb above freezing with snow lying in shaded areas throughout the day. A great time to be out with my sketchbook-  I love painting snow.
