After the warmest winter on record here in Scotland we were all beginning to wonder whether there would be any snow this season. While we missed out on a white Christmas and instead suffered lots of wet and windy weather continuing through the start of January the snow finally came on the 16th. Here's a few photo's from a short walk I took around the Renfrewshire area.
My walk was a very short one near the village of Bishopton while visiting a family member but is always a lovely route. After such mild recent weather I was keen to have a bit of proper winter weather even if it made the road travel to get there quite difficult.
I set out on my wander across the fields and slightly up hill to get a good view over the snow in Renfrewshire. It was quite heavily snowing at the time but the camera hasn't really picked this up though I did have to lighten photos a little. For me a covering of snow makes any landscape so much prettier even if it's only a dusting but most of all trees always make the perfect picture.
As well as the fields, a trip round the local reservoir also gave some lovely views though with so much snow it was a little difficult to see where the edges on the water were so I didn't wander too far.
We might have had to wait a little while but it was a good fall of snow in Renfrewshire and made a very nice winter walk even if I didn’t have anyone to build a snowman with. Here’s hoping there’ll be a bit more snow to come this winter season.
