Before the Thaw

It's hard to believe that this time last week most of the country was snowed in (with most places closed for business)! 

Before the thaw I decided I wanted to get out for a few more shots. Unfortunately, the light wasn't nearly as good as it was on Thursday, with things looking grey and miserable for most of the weekend. 

I did, however, make a trip to Hillsborough Parish Church. Much to my disappointment the beautiful avenue of trees that once lived here has been trimmed back quite considerably... This made the scene much less photogenic but I worked with what I had and came home with a shot. 

The final image is from when I went hunting for a lonely tree.. Conditions weren't great but I've a feeling in the right light this could work well!
