April A-Z Blogging Challenge: I

*ICY*

I never imagined my trip to Scotland this past week would include driving through blizzards and snow covered mountains! I also saw frozen waterfalls with huge icicles hanging down, but never managed to get a photograph :( Hopefully these icy images display the coldness well enough for you!

Stopping off at a parking space to embrace the chilly Scottish air and stand face to face with the atmospheric snow covered mountains



These next three images were taken through the windscreen of our car at about 40mph, so they're not perfect but I like them a lot!

Hard to believe it's April. The fact that you were in a car probably adds to the photographs. It blurs them slightly to get a sense of panic that snow can cause.

Not perfect but still good enough! Beautiful images Rach! I would have loved to see that frozen waterfall :)

This is me, Duncan D. Horne, visiting you from the A-Z challenge, wishing you all the best throughout April and beyond.

Lovely pictures. Who would have thought that after driving through those icy conditions we had a lovely sunny day the other side of it? We even visited a beach!
