We had some snow recently, a seemingly rare winter event these days. Unfortunately living by the coast any snow which does appear usually quickly melts. As the snow lay around I was pondering on what I could try and photograph as it can create some great light. Hares running through snow seemed like a nice idea. Unfortunately I was late getting to the site and met with a carpet of snow covered in hare tracks. Looked like I had potentially missed some good action. During my search for the hares I only managed to find two, neither of which were running through snow!
The first was laying down and creating its own personal snow drift.
The other stood staring for a while at close range before departing into some undergrowth.I thought there is always tomorrow but by the next day all the snow had virtually melted away. I felt as if I had missed an opportunity but with the happy consolation that it always good to get those first hare photos of the year :)
