Breakfast on a frosty morning

 

I live next to Chester’s Farm and he produces some fantastic Beef from mainly Belgian Blue Cattle . At the moment all are safely inside his barns for they winter as we are high up on the Yorkshire Moors, breakfast on a frosty morning for these beasts is a steamy experience as you can see. all seem very content with the well fermented silage !!

Gun Dogs – Gällivare, in the Arctic Circle

When I visited earlier in December I met up with Lasse Tano and Ola Backe who hunt Ptarmigan in the winter out in the forests. So I had the task of capturing images of two fantastic English Setters one called Myrhedens P- Fille, 2 years old and Lappvikens Ego Boy ( 12 years old) who is a double champion in Sweden. The temperature was -25 and we only had daylight for a couple of hours so I am really happy with the results. So thanks to Lasso and Ola and great work from the dogs.

The Italian Dolomites

Just spent a week walking in the Italian Dolomites. It’s an area renowned for it’s 3000m jagged peaks of pale , heavily-eroded limestone that shoot up from green pastures and flower strewn meadows. Part of the is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the highlight being a circular walk around the world famous Tre Cime (The Three Peaks) three immense obelisks of sheer rock. The walk starts at the Rifugio Auronzo and you climb to around 2600m.
