I got up at 6.00am in the morning, with only 2 hours of sleep to see if I could get any pictures of the snow. When I got to the river I was greeted with a vibrant dramatic sunrise, contrasting against the pale colours of the newly fallen snow on the roof tops in the distance. The clouds only lasted for a few minutes so I came home with few photos, but I am very happy with the result of this one in particular.
