I got 2008 off to a good start – the first weekend in January, took the funicular railway up Cairn Gorm to the `Ptarmigan’ centre. It was -5ºC outside with extra windchill – so cold I could only run out for 2mins and shoot things before hands got so frozen I couldn’t operate the shutter properly. This photo was taken looking into a blizzard with little flecks of snow/ice blowing hard into the lens (or my face, when camera wasn’t in the way). Ouch.
