A giant snowman stands in Cale Green Park, Stockport. The snowman is actually the commemorative stone covered in a layer of snow with a snowball on top for the head.
During the snowy weather of late December 2009, snowmen were everywhere to be seen but this was one of the biggest!

What could be simpler and more straightforward than taking a picture of a snowman? But actually some thought went into this. I stood to the right of the snowman with the sun behind me, but decided to move to the left as there was more depth and a sense of volume with the sun coming from the right, giving deep shadows on the left. Even taking the simplest photograph, there are many choices that make a real difference.
