Pentland Trees

By Consulo    
As most UK viewers will be aware, there's been a huge amount of snow up here in Scotland.

This shot was taken on the Pentland hills, where I trudged through some of the deepest snow I've ever been in; that was last Wednesday, so I can only imagine how deep it is now. Apparantly the area has been given an avalanche warning, which is remarkable for a set of hills on the outskirts of Edinburgh.

I took this picture inbetween a series of snow showers. The sun was setting and I had packed up to move on, but the light changed suddenly so I had to scramble to get my bag off of my back to grab my camera in time.

Thanks for looking,
Michael. Smile

This is a gorgeous shot and well worth all the effort.
Easy for me to say in my centrally heated home!
Oh and 'shortlisted!'
