Saturday Snow

A selection of pics from Saturday evening. The light was fading fast, but it created a very atmospheric mood..... or was that just me!



Looking towards Dunnichen Hill from Letham. I wonder if it snowed the day they fought the Battle of Nechtansmere......
There's something very comforting about that peculiar glow you get in the evenings during a snowfall as the light is going...... together with the silence the blanket of snow creates, it never fails to thrill.


Don't think too hard about how you pronounce Dunnichen...... I've lived around here for a looooong time and I still have no idea!




I liked the red of the lamp post against the evening sky.

  3. Just look at that blue beautiful light. I remember light like that during the winters of my childhood in B.C. Gorgeous and still.

  5. Great shots Neil, I like the pink snow on the bank. I am now going to find out about the battle of Nechtansmere.

  6. I love the pink snow - I love how it never really gets dark when it's snowed and you wake up in the middle of the night and it's ghostly blue and silent muffled... and you just know it's snowed :)

  9. Mmmmm, great shots, Neil. Very cozy.

    dun-NEH-ken is how I'd say it.... so that means that interpretation is probably not correct! ;-)
