Dunnottar

In June while visiting Aberdeen we took a day trip to Stonehaven, Aberdeenshire while there we spent the afternoon at nearby Dunnottar Castle. Although I have visited the site of Dunnottar Castle several times over the years this was the first time that I explored the actual castle itself. The castle provides some majestic views over the North Sea.

Back in June while visiting friends and family in Aberdeen, we took a trip to Stonehaven, Aberdeenshire. While growing up my parents would take me on many day trips to Stonehaven and it has become one of my favourite costal towns in Aberdeenshire.

Mandarin Duck

While visiting the Longshaw Estate in Derbyshire the other weekend we managed to see some of the wildlife that have made the estate their home, including some Mandarin ducks.

Beast from the East

Last week saw much of the UK under a blanket of snow caused by what is being nicknamed “The Beast from the East”, bringing at least some parts of the country to a stand still or at least a mild panic that there might be a sudden shortage of bread & milk.

Usually I mock the people of Yorkshire when there is the mere hint of snow. Although on this occasion I shall let them off as it did nearly get to Scottish standards.

Sadly I did not have much opportunity to capture the picturesque scenes that this sudden snowfall had created. Although some may have you believe that with the first hint of snow we all must stockpile milk & bread, and in the madness forget how to drive safely, life does still go on and we must all still go to work. These are just a few of the scenes that I managed to capture.
