-6c and the water is still flowing

Standing in the freezing cold and couldn't get an angle to get this properly, this is the best I could do.

An old mill converted into a visitor centre, cinema and coffee shop. Have to say the coffee in the Beanscene really wasn't worth the 20 minute wait. Neither was the stale muffin :(

Just round the corner from the mother in laws. Nice little church, tucked away in a side street of Kirkwynd.

Had a great wee walk around Hawick today. Was freezing cold but we braced it and got a few bits and bobs and lunch. Took this on the way home, Impressed as its a handheld shot and didn't blur like I thought it would.

Another shot from Kagyu Samyé Ling Monastery and Tibetan Centre. As my son insisted that getting up at 7am to watch Cbeebies, I thought I'd take time in lightroom and created this.

Kagyu Samyé Ling Monastery and Tibetan Centre

After a long drive of 2hrs which should have been 30 minutes, I have to say I enjoyed our day out.

Really want to go back here in the better weather, I think the scenery would be even more breath taking.

Luss, Loch Lomond

This original shot is one I took not long after I got my Canon. I reworked it slightly but it's a place close to my heart.

5am walks with the dog, the calm water and the dog running like a nut along the beach.

Glasgow Cathedral at Radiance

A sight I will never forget, even if I was frozen and was sick twice with morning sickness, well evening sickness.

I went chasing a December sunset today and it was too cloudy to get much. This was all I managed before the clouds took over.

A seminary in Cardross, Scotland. St Peter's was somewhere I used to walk with the dog alot and I miss the crumbling walls and the feeling of the place.

Glasgow at Sunset. The place I started with a camera and the place I'll be back in in a few days. I miss sunsets like this and the cool air off the water.

Sun Through the Graves - Glasgow Necropolis

This is my 2nd most viewed photo on flickr. I've always loved it. It was a cold cold morning when I took it and it was worth the hike.

A sculpture by a Scottish sculptor, Andy Scott. I love this sculpture but never seem to just catch her just right.

Donaghadee Lighthouse

Always a more dramatic scene when its dark and gloomy. The RNLI boat always seems to make the scene. Just remember to watch your footing as the cobbled harbour is a tad slippy.

Ballyholme Beach in Bangor. Have to say there is nothing better than a summer night, sun going down and sitting on the swings watching in the cooling breeze :)
