Getting all wrapped up to go for a walk on a cold, crisp day is one of the best things about winter. It may be very tempting to stay inside when it's bitterly cold, but for me, nothing beats the feeling of arriving at a cosy coffee shop or getting back into the warm car after wandering until your cheeks are red and your fingers are numb.
Last weekend, I headed over to the Helix park in Falkirk to see the Kelpies - a stunning pair of steel horses which proudly stand 30 metres tall at the edge of the Forth and Clyde canal. A walk here was the perfect opportunity to blow away the winter cobwebs before returning to uni and definitely meant that I earned a hot chocolate!
The Kelpies and the canal are both very photogenic and I was very keen to test out my new camera so obviously it came on the walk too!
It was absolutely freezing but the bright, wintery skies and low clouds made for beautiful photos.
Do you have a favourite spot for a wander?
Lots of love,
