Towards the Farm Cottages – Watercolour

I photographed this scene a couple of weeks ago when there was plenty of snow lying. It shows the long track leading towards Ratho Mains Farm Cottages. These dwellings once housed the local farm workers but they are all privately owned now. They lie about half a mile to the south of our village and they are surrounded by fields. A peaceful place to stay but things must have been hard getting out for supplies during the hardest weather. As they do not lie on local roads there was no snow clearing and its taken until a few days ago for all of the snow to clear. Just in time for the next lot which might come in a few days.
