Behind The Lens

Location
My family live in Lancashire, the north of England (an area not renowned for being terribly sunny), however when the sun does break through, it is truly magical. Ingleborough, one of the Three Peaks.
Time
I think we set off fairly early in order to be back for a late lunch. This was taken with my pocket Sony camera.
Lighting
The setting was magical, between the wind on the snow, the sun, and being nearly alone with nature, the lighting was beautiful. (Apart from perhaps my dad's mulit-coloured fleece!)
Equipment
A small Sony which I always carry with me, which can just fit in my coat pocket, ideal for a light Boxing day hike.
Inspiration
The frost on the grass, the light catching the snow, the blades of plants suddenly seemed tall and majestic.
Editing
None needed, and at the time I did not know how to do much post-editing anyway! (Regarding post-processing, to be honest, I am still learning).
In my camera bag
I now carry at least one Canon SLR, if not two if I know I am to take many photos, otherwise my pocket Sony. This photo was taken with my pocket Sony before I had invested in my SLRs.
Feedback
Look around, inspiration can come from anything and anywhere. It is the natural shots which inspire me the most.
