We love when it snows in Edinburgh.
Today saw the whole of the city covered in snow despite promising signs of Spring last week. We were out and about capturing as many snowy scenes as we could today and got caught in more than one snow shower!
All pictures are unedited and were taken with a Panasonic bridge camera.

At this stage, the idea of ‘nipping up’ the Scott Monument came to mind. It was rather good to have the whole monument to ourselves!
