Gorgeous winter weather

Last year, the UK Met Office decided that the North Atlantic storms that batter this island deserve to have names.  After all, wind speeds in Scotland and the upland areas of northern England are frequently as strong as you might see in a hurricane, with barometric pressures to match.  This winter we have indeed been subject to a tiring sequence of these beasts.  They do however bring some gorgeous sunshine, so if you're willing to brave the icy winds, there are some great photo opportunities to be had.
