Today, Scotland and many other parts of Britain continues to suffer from the effects of a very early wintry blast from the east resulting in major transport disruption and school closures.

Whilst temperatures were very low and the landscape covered with a 10cm layer of snow, I was motivated by the bright sunshine to get out on my bike and take some images of the wintry scenes. I spent about an hour or navigating around Pollock Park but thereafter had to give up as the extreme cold was causing discomfort.

The results of my photo expedition are provided below.

Here is the White Cart Water (river) resplendent in an interesting combination of snow, ice and sunshine.

This is Pollock House, a magnificent Adam designed 18th century mansion. This is the fourth house to be have been built at Pollock as residence for the Maxwell family over a period of 700 years. The property is now managed by Scotland’s National Trust in partnership with Glasgow City Council and is open to the public.

Close to the entrance to Pollock House I found this lone hiker in the snow.

Elsewhere today I have :

  • Shovelled large amounts of snow to clear our driveway.
  • Corresponded with clients on prospective tours.

Another cold night looming.

There is a positive aspect to the current conditions in that the ski centres are open but access to them is proving difficult due to blocked roads.
