Forth Rail Bridge Sunset

Photography in the Snow

As we head into winter again I thought I’d share some pictures from the past few years taken during the Winter and in the snow…

Snow in the Forest

Above: Walking through the trees on the path between the Falkirk Wheel & Roughcastle Roman Fort with everything covered in snow.

Winter Sunset

Frozen Canal

Above:  Looking towards the Falkirk Wheel from the frozen Forth & Clyde canal with snow covering the majority of the ground.

Hopefully this year there will be some more snow for a better variety of shots and if so they will be able to be found in the Flickr album below:
