Winter arrives in Glasgow

Winter finally arrived in Glasgow today, about one month late.

With temperature down to around freezing we had a light snowfall this morning which provided opportunity for some useful landscape shots, benefiting from low angle sunlight directed on the Campsie Fells, a range of hills situated directly north of Glasgow.

(Campsie is derived from the Gaelic term cam sith for 'crooked hill' whilst fell is derived from the Old Norse (Viking) fjall meaning 'hill'. Thus the two parts of the description mean essentially the same thing (in different languages) and reflect the migration patterns of around 1300 years ago.)
