This morning, I ventured out in the very harsh winter conditions to obtain more seasonal images. The following were all taken at Linn Park, south Glasgow. I found the sheer, brilliant whiteness very stimulating and a world away from the ‘normal’ greens and browns. The River Cart ( White Cart Water) was partly frozen over, which provided an additional dimension-and access.
In the icy pool below note the circular ‘lily pad’ floating block of ice in the bottom left. I am intrigued as to the origin of these ice shapes.

This morning, I was once again presented with reasonable weather for photography. I went again to the valley of the White Cart, but this time to a location at Linn Park, near Clarkston, Glasgow. Here there is an historic iron footbridge which I thought might make a good subject but was sidetracked by some great shots of the reflections in the river which proved particularly attractive at this time of year, combining sunlight and autumn colours. The pics are displayed below.

This morning proved something of a challenge for images.
We are in the depth of winter, recovering from a exceptionally cold spell. There is still snow on the ground with continuing precipitation via a mix of wet snow and rain. Not surprisingly, there was little sign of sunlight.

Cognisant of the above conditions I set of for nearby Linn Park through which flows the White Cart Water (river) which, during the Industrial Revolution of the 18th and 19th centuries ,actually powered many of Glasgow’s nascent heavy industries, mills, etc. So, what is now a pleasant area for relaxation was, in past times, a heavy industrial area with all sorts of manufacturing, coal mining and quarrying.
