Glasgow Daily Photo

A photo a day from Scotland’s biggest city.

There’s snow in them there hills

I was really pleased with the zoom lens to be able to capture several landmarks in one go *and* the hills in the background as well with such clarity. Landmarks you may recognise from previous photos here are (L-R) the SECC (Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre, also known as the Armadillo), the Finnieston Crane, the top of the Clyde Arc (or Squinty Bridge), and the Main Building of Glasgow University.

    Fantastic shot, Jackie! I recognized the Armadillo immediately. 🙂

    Glad to see you got some fresh air finally. Sorry to hear about the stomach flu though — nasty. Good luck with marking the essays. You and my husband sound the same when reading student essays. I hope your mouth is cleaner that his is. 🙂

    What a wonderful overview of the city…I do recognize the Armadillo. I have cousins in Glasgow, and was there two years ago, roaming through every nook and cranny.
