Today, I am posting winter images obtained during my walk this walk morning around the snowy landscape of South Glasgow. Overnight, winter returned with a combination of a good covering of powderysnow and sub zero temperatures. This provides opportunities to take a fresh look at the locality and observe people and wildlife managing-even having some fun- in the wintry environment. Most of the images below were taken in and around Rouken Glen, a country park popular with locals.

Here is a father and child having fun tobogganing in the snow.
