A fotoVUE White Christmas

UK Weather Today. Mild for many with some rain. Windy in the north. Exceptionally mild and rather cloudy for many with occasional rain and drizzle. More persistent rain in the north-west edging south-eastwards through the day. Very windy in the north, and turning colder here, with showers becoming wintry by the evening.

AHappy Christmas and a big thank you to everyone from fotoVUE and if those showers don’t turn wintery later, below is plenty of the white stuff from all the fotoVUE authors and photographers, and here’s to more fotoVUE photo-location guidebooks in 2017 and beyond.
