Picturesque ruin

These were taken on Christmas Eve. The snow was beginning to blow off the mountain but the wind had not yet picked up where I was standing.

The shell of an old sheep-house makes a stark contrast with the snowy landscape. Since the photo was more or less monochromatic anyway, I went all the way and converted it to black-and-white and increased the contrasts.

Here is the same ruin in colour. 
I wanted to show the slate blue shades of the sky contrasted with the snow and dry grass and so kept it in colour.
