Last year we had less snow but very low temperatures. It provided some unusual landscapes. This is an oil painting of one of the views from the rear of the house I was in called 'Over the Wall'. To the left of this view is an abandoned digger and the shell of a new house build. The promise of completing that build long evaporated and now probably as extinct as the Celtic tiger that fuelled its creation. I chose to not show it. The only hint of all this is the piece of scaffolding in the foreground.
This afternoon I shot this guy hunting for food also in a fields over my garden wall. The light was fading hence the grainy quality.
