A mixed bag.

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.

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.

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.

Thank you for visiting and take care.
