It's been an exceptionally cold start to the year which I find deeply annoying because my supposed 'snowmobile' is out of action and being repaired after a blown headgasket that I suffered on the return trip from Cornwall a couple of weeks ago. Being as the main reason for buying the 4x4 version was to get out in these sorts of conditions, watching everybody else have fun while I'm stuck in has been particularly difficult. Anyway - I won't whinge (OK, just a little bit) and I've been putting the time I would have had in the field creating a location guide into researching how some of Britains top landscape photographers deal with the cold weather. The following are a compilation of notes made during phone calls, emails and general conversation made over the last week. We start with the man who has arguably been out photographing in Britains coldest ever weather - a minus 29 degrees in Moray last year.
