We walked up to Beaufront Hill Head again on Thursday and the change from the previous week was dramatic. The sun was hidden by a blanket of cloud and the barley had been harvested – it felt like the year was on the turn – one shot, more ways:

The snow clings to the north facing fields and since then more has come and gone and come again.
