A Frosty Morning in Dawyck

The frosty but fabulously sunny morning tempted me into a visit to Dawyck, both for the exercise and the photography, and I wasn't disappointed. One of the advantages of the Scottish winter is the emergence into the light once it's almost over. The low sun brings with it beautiful shadows which makes for stunning imagery.
 Where the sun hadn't reached yet, everything was frozen including the snowdrops.
 In the sun, however, they were putting on a wonderful display.

For some reason, due to how the light was falling, the stained glass in Dawyck Chapel was clearly visible and I took full advantage of it.

Whenever I am in Dawyck I eventually loose myself in my photography looking at the world through a lens even when I'm not actually doing it. Pictures are composed in my head as I'm walking and looking,  and here are some more of the ones that made it into a real photograph.

Every photo is beautiful, Dawyck looks stunning in your hands! The colours, textures, tonal contrasts are very enticing.
