Breathaking views accompanied sub zero temps of -16C in Peebles in the lovely scottish borders as the river tweed flowed in viscous slow motion with ice spreading over the surface… with tweed bridge barely visible in the mist..

Taken with a compact fuji finepix A500

The first time I’ve seen it this frozen..

Cheers and thanks so much for looking
