Alton Barnes White Horse in Winter

I have tried to realise the potential of this winter composition at Alton Barnes in Wiltshire many times over the last 15 years. On this January day all the elements finally came together. A dusting of overnight snow turned the horse gleaming white and picked out the tractor route to form leading lines. I set up my tripod and waited for a brief shaft of sunlight to bathe the White Horse in golden light. Differential lighting across the scene emphasises the main subject, whilst dark clouds beyond Milk Hill add some drama.
