Bliss in a Blizzard

I had been hoping for some time that I might one day get to photograph the Beech trees at Draycott Sleights in the snow. Due to their location up a steep hill on the Mendips I thought that might never happen as I wouldn't be able to drive there. That all changed in February 2019 when it snowed but the roads remained passable. The trees looked wonderful with their roots embedded in a smooth layer of snow.

'Bliss in a Blizzard' is also available as a greeting card.
