Snowy Photography

I've been doing nothing this last while and its been LOVELY. It feels like a long time since I've had a holiday where I've actually had time off. Not a holiday where I've been working my socks off constantly.

Between my utter laziness I did venture out with my dad today, to the shop. It took about half an hour to defrost the car. But once we got going it wasn't so bad. The roads are still very slippy here. Every other day it snows.

This was the view from my kitchen window today. Some amazing clouds formations today.
These are the family cars stuck at the bottom of our road, unable to get up the hill.

Along the way to the shop, I had my dad stop various times so I could take some snapshots.

This really is why I miss home so much when I'm living in Dundee. The scenery is just like nothing else. Especially on special days like this. The light was just gorgeous. The sea was warmer than the air and the land, so mist poured off the sea. 

I'm very glad I pinched my mam's camera. My camera doesn't capture colour and light quite like hers does.
All the pictures are in their unaltered state. I haven't bothered tweaking the colours- I don't think they need much, if any tweaking.

This is the old pier at Swartshoul (I hope thats how its spelt)
The nearest building here is my old primary school, caked in icing.

Suspicious bird is suspicious.

This is the Manse in Hillswick. I'm very proud of this picture. Probably one of the best photos - I think - I've ever taken.


  1. Those pictures are lovely, however I can't click on the last one for a large version! It really is excellent.

  2. Thankyou :)
    Not sure why it does that. Sometimes when I put captions under the photos it doesn't let you fullview.

    Its on my deviantart anyway :D
