"Mini" Beast from The East

After we had all survived the Beast from The East at the start of March i set off for a springlike week in the Peak District. I enjoyed a balmy afternoon at Ladybower Reservoir but then the snow and gales set in.  By Sunday morning Tideswell was swamped by a foot of snow and I was going nowhere in my car.

Having spent most of the morning indoors I decided to go for a circular walk to take a few snow photographs.  Wow!  As soon as I got off the side road onto the designated track I realised that I was in for a spectacular walk.  The snow was being blown off the fields and against the walls making huge and shapely snowdirfts.  I had to replan my walk as there was no way that I could navigate the whole track.  My second plan was a non starter either so I finished up on a there and back linear.  However, it was so amazing that I didn't really care.

Here are some of the snowdrifts that  I encountered.
