Today is really snowed. A blizzard. Overnight the whole landscape completely changed and everywhere was covered white. The muddy fields turned into soft fresh carpets of white foam. The sound is muffled. There is a stillness.

We crossed the road from where we are staying, climbed over a gate and walked out and across a field. The snow was coming in sideways and it was wonderful. Fresh, virgin, pure white.

We walked up the hill and across the field and found a picture postcard lane with drifts of snow piled up and the fresh tracks of animals. It was exhilirating.
