Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone!
Happy Easter Holiday to all those who are fortunate enough to be on holiday today!

Further with my theme of moorland farms, this example demonstrates perfectly how many of the farm houses nestle into the hillside for added protection against bad weather.

The drystone walls are prominent and these also offer protection for the animals as well as marking boundaries.

This quiet, February scene will probably be a little different now! The sheep will have been moved closer to the farm for lambing so the field will be occupied now!

Most farmers aim to have their ewes lambing at this time of the year when the worst threats of snow and chilling winds are over. (Having said that, I can remember times when the first day of spring has been accompanied by blizzards and some farmers ventured out to put plastic bags on the lambs to help keep them warm.)

Thank you for your visit.
Please feel free to offer feedback on any aspect of the photograph. :-)
