This is shot was taken in February 2013. Snow fell steadily for several days and eventually the fields were shrouded white as far as the eye could see. The sky and the land seemed to merge into one and huge drifts built up along the roadside. So far winter 13/14 has brought only gales and rain, so much so that many areas are flooded and several people have sadly lost their lives. Nature is both beautiful and a terrible foe.
