Snow on the Beach

Portobello.  Strange light as the clouds roll in and the sun goes down.

It has been about twenty years since we have had as much snow so early on in the winter.  At least the Ski folks will be happy.  Forecast to be cold for another 10 days.

The clocks changed back to GMT at the weekend.  I hadn't taken a shot for today and stuck my head out the door at 5 PM.  Apart from the rain it was, of course, dark.
