The Beast from the East

The Beast from the East - Yorkshire Coast
I've always wanted to photograph Staithes in the snow so as the 'Beast from the East' approached I took a chance and headed for the coast. It's been a long time since I've taken a photograph in conditions as bad as this! There was a very strong, squally wind that seemed to come from every direction, blowing in wave after wave of snow and sleet. Keeping warm and more importantly keeping the front element and filters dry was a nightmare but it was worth all the effort to capture the storm as it swept in off the North Sea
