A Snowy River of Trees





snow covered trees ripple in the water, interrupted by passing ducks
,
Taken last weekend along the Water of Leith near the Gallery of Modern Art.

The snow has mostly melted now, it's almost warm and I heard a blackbird singing this morning. More like practising, really, but still, a wonderful sound.

I posted more reflection photos on my Over Forty Shades blog here.

Hi Juliet - Thank you for visiting my blog and commenting on my Camera Critters.
I have been looking at some of your posts and I see winter has covered Edinburgh in ice. It looks lovely in photos but must be difficult in reality.
The only time I ever saw Edinburgh was for a week in August of 1996, with wonderful weather.
