Merry Christmas! I’m up in Perth with my family for a few days, but it doesn’t look as festive as this image from Christmas Day a couple of years ago! I went out for a walk with the camera, but the conditions were grey and windy, not ideal for photography, so I spent the afternoon stuffing myself with food and geeking out with new gadgets!
I’m now back in Rugby, after a nightmare journey down from Perth, featuring a closed airport and lack of customer service from the airline, luckily for my next trip I will be driving.
I hadn’t actually planned to shoot anything on Wednesday, I’d been snowboarding up at Glenshee, without the camera gear, it was another perfect blue sky day of Scottish snowboarding. After getting back into town, we went to the Shake Bar for a Scottish tablet milkshake, which everyone should experience in their life. We enjoyed the milkshakes overlooking the Tay as the sun was setting and for some reason, the Tay was flat clam making the reflections of lights from the bridges really vivid. So we rushed back to grab the cameras and these are the resulting images:

A belated Merry Xmas to all my followers!
