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.

Here’s Wellington’s statue in its entirety – I thought he looked rather good with a sprinkling of snow. The building behind him with the fancy columns is the Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA).

And here’s the City Chambers and George Square in the snow (are you bored of snow yet?!). Unlike much of the city centre George Square wasn’t all slushy – it was cordoned off as workmen were taking down the Christmas decorations.

Just turning round from yesterday’s photo. It was pretty, though also pretty cold.

Here’s the final Christmas Eve snow picture from Queen’s Park. There’s something about this one I really like.

Snowy gate

The gate at the entrance to Queen’s Park is impressive at the best of times, but I think even more so in the snow.

For the next few days I’ll show a few shots I took in Queen’s Park on Christmas Eve. The snow came early this year.
