Arcs of steel not timber, weather this storm,
this casual watcher of the world,
with passenger of flight now resting,
a chill shudder to weather and time.

A local pig production field near East Knapton near Malton in North Yorkshire. One of the locals came out to check out the snow and the bird just settled down for the ride.

Cropped to make the most of panoramic view of the lens and the Four Thirds ratio and part of a project.

Converted into black and white and best viewed large.

Shot on an Olympus E30.

    The poor piggy is probably frozen, and the bird frozen to it! Fabulous image Richard!!!!!

  • LOL not likely, it was having a really good root around in the snow :)

    This particular slice of winter would go well with eggs & a bit of grilled tomato, methinks. But we won’t go there; once bacon’s been frozen, it loses something. Fabulous shot, birdie & all.

  • Not if it is smoked, deepens the flavour ;) LOL thank you Sheila

    She will need a wee dram when she goes back inside… I didn’t think pigs liked the cold!

  • They are a tougher breed than we give them credit for ;) saving the dram for me though lol

    Is it an electric fence for its heating or to keep the greedy photographers from coming too near ?

  • Well it was not doing a great job of melting the snow.. lol
