Snow on the ground transforms any scene, even the view outside my front door in North Wales, looking out over our local meadow towards a line of trees, stark against the white foreground.
But what was engaging my attention on this cold winter's afternoon in January 2021 were the cloud patterns overhead, catching the light of the lowering sun as it made its way down to the southwestern horizon.
A warm front was approaching from the west, pushing waves of rising air and high clouds across the heavens so I braved the cold for an hour, watching and filming as clouds and sunset light combined in a beautiful display.
Mind you, I was glad when the light finally faded from the scene and I could make myself a hot cup of coffee!
