As you can see we are more or less snowed in. With a 4X4 the lane is just about doable but even then there are areas where the snow is too high for comfort. However on 2 legs there is no problem specially with spiked boots. So I set off this morning along the land in a westerly direction to enjoy an artist date as well as a photographic expedition, combined into one walk.
The forest is mainly evergreens but there are some deciduous trees which make an impressive lacy effect against the rest of the darker trees.
And on the other side of the road slowly but surely the sky brightened.
I could see some sheep in the distance and before I could even try out my new super zoom, they decided to make life easy for me and come closer of their own accord. They were very curious but I also think they were awaiting the farmer with their feeding as normally they are much more shy.
And this one seemed to be fascinated by the camera pointed in his direction.
