Photographer's Note

Last week in Scotland was almost spring-like with sun and clear skies but last night winter returned with a vengeance and we had very heavy snows which continued through today making driving conditions very bad. I checked the depth of the snow by our back door and it measured 10 inches (25 cm) at lunchtime today.

But I just had to get out for a walk and explore our home town of Lanark in the snow. In fact, it was snowing heavily when I left the house - and so, rather than risk getting my own camera wet, I decided to take my wife's little compact instead. But I did ask her first! :o)

Then, as I came to the tiny Delves Park, the sun shone and I came across this little park bench. Normally this place is full of people walking their dogs or sitting here relaxing but today obviously no-one had wanted to place their bottom on this snow covered seat. Nor had anyone disturbed the snow around about it, which was wonderful.

Somehow the colours in this picture didn't seem quite right so I took the liberty of converting it to black and white.
