First Frost...


First frost here of the approaching winter...a baltic cold Northerly wind blew in yesterday and temperatures plummeted...
Today was alot nicer as clear and we were rewarded with a big blue sky,out of the wind the sun warmed your back...was like a mid winter day yet alot of the trees still haven't turned yet...time for that yet...took some pictures midday...
so glad i work outdoors when the weather gives views like this...




off to the Pentland Hills in the distance tonight for the weekly midweek night ride with friends...love it...

  1. I experienced our first frost almost four weeks ago while on an overnight bike camping trip. I love the feeling of winter coming waking up to a thick layer of hard frost on everything and my water bottles partially frozen.

  5. Chilly willy! Light the stove, put a big soup on, dig out the hat and scarf, or for the bike, resort to the fleecy lined bib tights, the Next-to-Skin Winter jacket and the big lobster mitts - but you already know I'm a roadie, bro! Lovely pics, by the way. I love East Lothian (and miss it...)!
