The snow has gone, for now, these images were taken as it took its leave.
The houses at the foot of the shot above must get no sun all winter… we have often thought how lucky we were to end up with a house on sunny side of a hill, mind it was more through good luck than good management; buying as we did, at the height of summer it was something that never entered our busy little heads.
At this time of year its a landscape that is lean and emaciated or textural and fine boned, depending on your point of view.
Note the ugly white industrial building, bottom left of shot. When the snow is on the ground it is at least it camouflaged, the other 50 weeks of the year it stick out like a sore thumb. Planners please note.
