Crystal gazing.

28th December 2014

It looks fairly white on the hills although a lot of the cover is fairly thin. That said there were plenty of ski mountaineers around Glenshee hunting out the best runs and snow.

It was nice to see a lot of ‘needles’ in the snow today. This season snow crystals like this have been fairly rare due to the high winds destroying them.
