The Beauty of East Scotland
Early January was just after two named storms had been through leaving wide-spread flooding all over the UK, and we suffered as well. Our town was virtually cut off, certainly from the south! This is one of the flooded areas just outside Meigle. This area is one of the first to flood, unfortunately often across the road as well. This is just a small area of the flood water.

We are in the middle of the Vale of Strathmore, looking north to the foothills of the Cairngorms - normally we'd expect more snow to be on the top, but times are far from "normal", aren't they.

"Strathmore" means a large wide valley'. Mute Swans, Whooper Swans, Canada Geese and, of course Mallard had all made there temporary home here.

There is so much water it looks like a natural lake. Mother nature can certainly show her ire at times and create such breath taking beauty. TFS D!
