Lauder, Scottish Borders, Scotland

16th & 17th January 2018

The last real significant snowfall was back in 2010 / 2011, since then its been hit and miss to take nice winter shots in the area. Storm Fionn arrived on 16th January bringing heavy falls of snow to much of west and central Scotland, causing many travel problems but also some good photo opportunities.

 

Below are a few shots from the last couple of days , I was lucky enough to have the shot of the two cute West Highland Terries published in the Scottish Daily Mail and also the Scottish Daily Star on 17th January.

 

1- Here's Bud, the crazy cocker spaniel enjoying the snow.

Brilliant photos Phil.
The region looks glorious with a covering of snow. Just a pity I've got to work out in it! Hey-Ho.
