Sheep Making There Way Up To Hoad Monument. Ulverston

The fields around Ulverston were covered in snow after the beast from the East hit. I headed up to Hoad to get higher up to get more views. On the way down I looked back at the monument and noticed a group of sheep making there way over the fields to join the other sheep and shelter by the wall. I liked how the paths between the fields snaked there way down through the fields drawing your eye up to the top.

You can see a few people at the top near the monument making the most of the snow, taking in the views and posing for photographs. Hoad is the place to go when we have snow in Ulverston

Its Windy At The Top. Sledging On Hoad Ulverston

Looking over Ulverston Town from Birkrigg common at a snow-covered Hoad Hill. Scattered around the hill you could see groups of people sledging making the most of the fresh snow. A gust of wind picked up as I was taking the photos sending the snow everywhere at the top next to the monument.

You could faintly see the Lake District in the background when the clouds cleared in the background. In the foreground, you could see the path leading up to the right with the stone wall circling around on the left

Walking The Dog In The Snow Covered Lanes. Hoad Ulverston

The beast from the East brought some snow to Ulverston so I headed up to Birkrigg to get a view of Ulverston and Hoad and maybe across to the Lake District.

Once I got up there I had my eye on this path which I had scouted out a few months back, I knew it ended at the farm and was generally used by dog walkers so it was just a bit of a waiting game until one arrived. Fortunately, it didn’t take too long and a walker came just as the sun lit up the front of the hill

Its Windy At The Top. Sledging On Hoad Ulverston

Photos of Ulverston in the snow at the start of 2018. We don’t often get good snow in Ulverston so when it’s here you have to go out and make the most of it. I headed out with the camera. Half of Ulverston headed out with a sledge. Here’s some photos of Ulverston in the snow, now available as prints

Snow Covered Trees On Hoad Hill. Ulverston

These are on the walk up to Hoad Monument in Ulverston. I liked how they creating a triangle shape pointing down into the clouds above Ulverston. You can see the areas underneath the trees where the snow wasn’t able to reach creating a nice contrast with the bright snow.

We don’t often get good snow in Ulverston so this was more of an opportunist trip than a planned one. Fortunately, the low visibility due to the clouds helped make the photo as once it cleared the image didn’t work as well

Shelter from the snow storm. Ulverston

The larch trees on the walk up to Hoad monument creating shelter from the storm. I liked how the dark tree stumps and shadows stood out against the bright snow. The farmer had just arrived with food for the sheep, you can see them all making there way over for there dinner.

The low visibility helped to make this photo more interesting as usually the view behind the trees leads up to the hills behind. The clouds made the photo a lot simpler and the addition of the sheep helped add some details to the minimalist background

A Winter Walk Up To Hoad Monument. Ulverston

The path leading up through the snow-covered fields passed the trees which had already thawed out and then up to Hoad monument. A couple of hours before this you couldn’t even see Hoad due to the snowfall and low clouds.

Once the clouds had cleared you got this clear view up to Hoad with the larch trees leaning over on the left-hand side of the frame. This was the photo I had in mind when going up Hoad to see the snow, it didn’t work out on the way up but the view was there on the way down.

Sledging Is A Spectator Sport. Hoad Ulverston

I climbed up onto one of the hills close to the Hoad monument to try and get a view of both the monument and the town. Fortunately, the low cloud and snow had stopped and the view opened up. There was a lot of people out making the most of the snow sledging down the hills.

As I got to the top of this hill I noticed a lad walking over to avoid the rocks and for some fresh snow. He was going up an down this section of the field. A sheep walked up below where I was stood and started watching too

Ulverston canal at sunset

Stood at the canal gates at in Ulverston, Cumbria. Watching the sun go down over the water. The gates were reflecting in the water creating a mirror image and there was an orange glow in the sky behind ofHoad monument.

At the end, you can just about the start of Ulverston town. The canal has been sealed so it is no longer in use but there is a lot of history associated with it. It is described as the straightest in the UK. About halfway down is a sliding bridge from when the water was in use, with the adjoining buildings that used to house all of the gears. Although they now mainly house graffiti, you can get an idea of how different it must have been a few years ago

Hoad under the stars. Ulverston

I’ve photographed Hoad at night quite a few times now, I tend to use the 24-70mm and take either the 100mm or 135mm depending on where I’m going to stand. I took them all this time plus a 400mm to do some comparisons. I didn’t use the 400mm on Hoad as it wouldn’t all fit, it worked ok on the moon though.
