Not Going Out

After three days of snow, the landscape is transformed, more snow lying than many have ever seen, and drifts up to 3 metres deep.

Many roads are closed, and for the unfortunate few, power is still off 48 hours after it failed. NIE our electricity infrastructure provider, has been flying in repair crews by helicopter, as in places, land transport is impossible.

Last weekend was our busiest so far this year. Today, the Gallery is silent, entombed in snow.

the single tractor tracks give some indication of the depth of the show

snow from the roof blocks the way
