Glasgow, Scotland, taken on November 3, 2016
The University of Glasgow looked gorgeous this fall and I’ve managed to take some nice photos of the foliage that surrounds the campus. However, fall is leaving as quickly as it came and I feel like we’re already welcoming winter with the low temperatures these recent days. All the more reason to capture the fall colours before they disappear! Here is a photo taken at where I like to call the “6.5th floor” of the Rankine building where I work, which is really just the midpoint of the stairs between the 6th and 7th floor. As always, the Main Building looks spectacular from every angle, even more so with the bright leafs of fall!

Encounter with a lonely birdhouse hidden under the autumn foliage of an old tree at the University of Glasgow.

Out of the four seasons of the year, winter is certainly not the one that most Torontonians would look forward to, as snow-shovelling inevitably becomes the national sport. We do get some extreme weather conditions, but that is characteristic of a Canadian winter and strangely, I enjoy it to a certain extent. When I experience Scottish winters with temperatures of -5, complaining how cold and windy it is, I think of the -28 that my friends and family are facing in Toronto, and all of a sudden Glasgow doesn’t seem so bad 😉

There is a tree by the south gate of the University of Glasgow whose leafs turned a bright, flaming red during the autumn. What a pleasant sight!
Waterloo, Canada, taken on February 15, 2014
Winter is one thing I definitely don’t miss in Waterloo. It could get brutally cold and you don’t want to stay out for more than a millisecond. I was not ready for the Canadian winter last year, especially having had three previous European winters that were extremely mild in comparison. Yet, strangely, I still love snow!
