Wintry Reflections

The weather is still cold and snowy here, very beautiful! Here are a couple of reflections that show some of the beauty of a wintry Edinburgh! I took the first photo along the Water of Leith on Monday.
Crafty Green Boyfriend took this second shot in Princes Street Gardens on Christmas Day.
No reflections along the Union Canal, which is frozen solid - hopefully some photos of that tomorrow!

The second photograph is just the sort of thing I like. So many opportunities for good pictures in these conditions.....if you're brave enough to venture outside!

Love reflections. Crafty Green boyfriend keeps creeping into this blog, I see - does he have a blog of his own? If so would like to visit if he has more photos like this on it.

Thanks Martin!

Weaver, no Crafty Green Boyfriend doesn't have a blog, he just takes photos....

I have never been to Scotland in the winter months. I see I must rectify that.

Tell the crafty green boyfriend his tree is much admired!

They are both wonderful reflections. It sounds like we have had similar weather. I today was our last snow for a while, but it's still cold.

That first photo is so beautiful! But oh so cold!

Happy weekend!

Dianne said...

the composition adds tension
the detail in the foreground with the broad image in the background. hard to capture,
excellent balance and images

Ednburgh looks a lot like Versailles seen this way! Very nice reflections!

RuneE said...

Princes street reflections - and no one to enjoy them on the benches!

Thank you for sharing them with us :-)

Lovely stuff here as ever. Interested to hear of your redwings; have you seen any bramblings this year? I haven't, though some wyear we have plenty.

Ebie said...

These two photos are special. But the second is my favorite. The reflection on the puddle is very clear!

P.S. I love the codes CGP & CGB.

storyteller said...

Your world is soooo much colder than my own ... and very beautiful in it's winter white. Both are lovely reflections so it's difficult to choose a favorite.
Hugs and blessings,
