Looking toward the Moorfoot Hills in the far distance.

Scald Law and South Black Hill from the Font Stone, Pentland Hills

The wandering photographer went for a run up the hills despite the blue skies there was a strong biting cold wind - in other words... it was freezing!

Late evening light

Sunset on Auchencorth Moss

After another day the sky lights up


First lambs... spring is here!

They are challenging beasties to photograph... they won't stay still - pinging around all over the place!

Solitary tree

I could tell, this tree was waiting to be photographed

Manor Valley, Scottish Borders

Green trees, brown trees

Manor Valley, Scottish Borders. Larch trees

Monday afternoon and an exotic location deep in the Border Hills

Castlelaw Hill Fort and Turnhouse Hill

The day is looking good!

Carnethy Hill, Pentland Hills

Taken from the summit, looking to South Black Hill and Scald Law, the latter is the highest point on the Pentland Hills!

Pentland Hills to the south west

The hills in the middle distance are where the WP was yesterday

On top of the world... well South Black Hill anyway

Looking south from the slopes of South Black Hill

The wandering photographer has climbed halfway up the hill... he stops for a breather... I mean to take a photograph!

Another view across to the Moorfoot Hills in the far distance


The village of Silverburn looking chilly

Looking from the Pentland Hills to the Moorfoot Hills, Auchencorth Moss between

When the air is still, cold air sinks to the lower ground, the moor between the hills is -6C. On the hillsides it is only -3C! Warmer climes indeed!


A tree at the foot of the Pentland Hills. Hmmm not as frozen here.. is it slightly warmer? - yes! The clever wandering photographer knows his patch!

Near Carlops

Still freezing!

Auchencorth Moss

The inhabitants were decidedly chilly... and so was the wandering photographer! He decided to travel to a warmer clime!

Auchencorth Moss

Overnight the sky was clear, by Monday morning it was down to -6C.

Watching tree

Misty moss

Mystical morning


Monday morning was cold but magnificent. The wandering photographer went upon high.
