Went to bed Thursday night and the fields were green, woke Friday and the place is white. First snow of the year and it was evening before I could get time to head out of a walk around the local roads. There’s not a lot of great shots around here with it being just grazing and most of the old buildings pulled down and new homes replacing them. The one weekend it would have been great to be free I’m busy, snow just won’t last more that a few days here. Anyway back to a few photo’s.
Beside these trees there was a lovely old ruin, a home from over around 200 years ago with a little history.
Scroll down the page in the above link to read the story of this spot.
Not much traffic here.
Above details and textures.
These next Photos I caught at the last minute and were shot to be silhouettes has I metered off the black bird with spot metering against the bright sky.
This next shot is not something I do often but I enjoyed creating this. It was taken down by one of the many small lough’s we have around here.
And we have some visitors here at the moment, Redwing’s migrate here for the winter along with the Fieldfare both members of the Thrush family.
Above this is the Fieldfare.
The Redwing is the one in the foreground.
The next set of Redwing photo’s see the bird spit out a Hawthorn seed from the berries they were feeding on.
Did not know till I process these photo’s I had caught this, all the bird shots where taken with a 600mm and chopped in production. One more to go.
In this photo we have three Fieldfare’s and one Starling, So spot the odd one out.
Thank you for visiting and take care.

Great shots! Especially like the bird photos! 🙂
Thank you Tom
Looks crisp and cols with all the snow and ice
Thank you, it changes the look of the country side from ordinary to beautiful.
You still captured lovely Wintery weather photos. I must say I really like the photos of silhouetted bird you took.
Thank you, turned a corner and there was two of them picking the berries from the Hawthorn bushes. I grabbed a few shots, a couple of seconds later they moved.
those are gorgeous images George!! I’m hoping for snow here but it might not get here before Christmas. Sending blessings your way!! Wish I was over there!
Thank you, being Ireland the snow does not last long. Back to green fields and rain. But then again being Ireland it can change in a hours time.
Enjoy Christmas, take care .
