This road into the village was the best place for sledging, you would not dare do it today as people use it as a short cut and there is way to  much traffic passing through.(You may have guessed I have lived in this Village all my life).

You picked the right picture to suck the colour out of, Tracy.
I now see a pic that could have been a charcoal sketch from 80 years ago, and it is of a cold, quiet...maybe secretive...tiny village.
Tracy: Thank you so much Ray. I thought this shot looked good with the conversion too.smile

The lack of color in this image gives it such depth and feeling, Tracy. It makes it feel heavy and lush at the same time. Very well done.
Tracy: Thank you so much Kathryn, appreciate your commentsmile
Great as b&w. I can just see you tramping back from the village shop with a jamboree bag and a bottle of pop!
Tracy: I wish Bill, we never had a little shop, just a pub and the animal feed mill.smile
