Its been a while since the camera has been out so decided to take a few pictures of my twice daily journey to feed the horses. The country lanes are covered with ice and snow making them really hazardous driving conditions.

Beautiful photos Anton, looks very cold as all the shots from your part of the world have been lately. Your horse looks very happy to see you and the feed I take it!

Thank you Richard and Martin, the horse Welly was extremely eager this morning to get back in to the field after a night in the stable, hes only a young horse so when the green grass has changed colour to white it confuses him a little. Its hard work looking after them in the winter months and this year winter has come a lot sooner. Normally we donít have to bring them in each night until late December or on extremely wet nights but over the last few weeks they have been stabled each night. The fields are open to the elements allowing really bitter cold temps which really do cut right through you. On a positive note I really do enjoy the time I spend their even on these bitter cold mornings / evenings. Off working in the North (Newcastle) tomorrow another 510 mile round trip so will take the camera and image parts of the trip should see plenty of snow so hopeful of some wintery images.

Thanks

Anthony

Thanks Mark & John, Not really looking forward to the trip tomorrow even though I do this journey twice a week but I am contracted to a Northern Gas Network for onsite service for their in-vehicle computer system we designed and when one fails I have to respond within a set time period, should be interesting to capture the snowfall through all the different counties.
