This is one of those landscape-format portraits like Gainsborough’s Mr and Mrs Andrews, though I wasn’t thinking of that when I took my photographs. In my case the landowner is trudging home with the dogs through the snow. There are similar trees: a line of ash on the right – you only see the first one but I know they’re there – and spruce or whatever it is, on the left, where I should be standing with my enormously long thin gun instead of a smallish camera. I may take more of these.
