Morning lass

Morning lass, originally uploaded by ccgd.

I was down on the links - at the bottle bank - on an otherwise dreich and windy Sunday morning. Then the clouds split and the Peedie Lass was illuminated with light and shadows.

Of course I had the camera in the car, and took three hand held bracketed exposures, in about 10 seconds.

When I had finished, the clouds rolled over for the the rest of the day.

Just snow trees and sky

Stopped in a snow plow convoy on the A9 just south of Moy last week- just lots of snow.

Took me back to 70's. Blue and white.

Carrbridge - Speyside

Blogging technical problems for the past week seem to have been resolved, and the forecast change in the weather is projected to "solve" the snow problems.

I'm sitting in the office in Inverness, witha sandwich and a cup of tea, looking out on a slowly thawing snowscape. Almost 10 days of snow seems a real throwback to the 70's when this type of weather seemed quite common.

This shot is from last week in Carrbridge - I'd left my car in Aviemore when on the train south (sadly its sometime easier and quicker to drive to Aviemore and pick up a train there, than get to the centre of Inverness, park, and get to the station), and arrived back their last week to a real winter wonderland. The snow was so deep that I took the chance to drive the old road back through Carrbridge to see if I could capture this shot.

And I did.

Perth station lines

Perth Station, the coldest place in the world.

Trust me the coldest - even without snow.

It's a B&W sort of place

Black Ewe

Black Ewe, originally uploaded by ccgd.

I should be in London, but the white stuff seems to have wiped out any semblance of normal life south of the Watford Gap. So instead I'm sitting in a wet Cromarty, with no sign of snow (unlike this picture taken above Dingwall a few weeks ago).

Well Edinburgh tonight - lets see if the South still has the snow when I get there.
