Indeed the snow arrived, but it just snowed at the top of the hills. For this reason during the morning I took time to explore the new snow in the uninhabited areas on the top of the valley. It was quite difficult to drive across some shadowy areas because of the snow on the road, and the chilly temperatures made the snow turn into freezing blocks where the car skated even over the smallest slope.
Later I went down to explore the countryside landscape with my camera. Trees, shrubs… all the wildlife looked asleep. Only the sheep go along the snow-covered slopes looking for a bit of grass to eat.
The rain poured down in the lower valley but the red kites arrived as every day to their appointment at Gigrin Farm because Chris feeds them every day at 2 pm during the wintertime.
Not many red kites arrived, and the dull light didn’t help so much to shoot them. But their flights were one more time an amazing sight for everyone.
