Farmer Harold in his calf igloo.

In another interesting commission, I met a friendly Fylde farmer and was introduced to calf igloos.  I think the calves are wondering why he is inside and not them!

This is one of my favorite jobs of the year, meeting an inspirational weightlifting vicar from Bacup who was more than happy to pose for a press photo shoot.
