Photographer's Note

this time last year we were experiencing the coldest winter in years with huge snow drifts followed by temperatures reaching lows of -18C in some places.

this winter has been the mildest for years with temperatures of +12C on christmas day. i think i've only had to scrape frost off my car on two mornings so far this winter.
this picture was taken in scarva, a small village in county down northern ireland, just before christmas last year. i didn't have an ND grad, so used a tobacco filter instead to mitigate the glare of the sunset as i was shooting straight into it. the light coming through the gate attracted my attention to the scene as i was driving past.
