Memories of a winters farm

This weekend two years ago I was staying at a farm located near Eryrys, Denbighshire, North Wales.

On arrival the weather was cold with some snow in the air but by the next morning it had started snowing heavily and did not stop for the full two weeks of the visit.

Farming in this kind of weather is very difficult and feeding the animals very much so, the following images are just some taken during the stay and I feel they captured the north Wales landscape during one of its hardest winters for some forty years.

  7. Nigel these are gorgeous winter images πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    I love the simplicity of those sheep marching across the horizon.

    And I very much love that misty tree and its perfectly round silhouette.

    In winter, covered with snow, even the town buildings look as lovely as the wild landscape……..

    Thank you :).

    Stunning images, Nigel.
    I guess most of us can only imagine how difficult farming in a hard winter can be.

    • Hello Vicki πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      I think its a great way of life but hard and rugged at times and this winter was very hard work, just to keep the sheep feed and away from the snow drifts !

      Thank you πŸ™‚

    Oh, I love those sheep plodding through the drifts, the little creatures. And that wide shot of the buildings, with the mist rising. These are truly evocative shots – bravo!
