Driving through the Lammermuir Hills in december,Ollie in the back of the car,looking for wildlife to photograph.It’s -1C outside but feeling much colder with the wind chill.Inside the car it’s no warmer,as both front windows are open,a beanbag on both sides,and the cars’ heater has packed up.Even the camera packs up in the end as the battery gets too cold.
Mind you,They do say,we are supposed to ‘suffer for our art’.
‘Well’,said Ollie,’Whoever They are,they can shut the f**k up!’
