I love this. The best yet, for me, really takes me there. Technically spot-on, no bloody great footprints, great sky...... has it all. And the added bonus of your 'arse end' in the description, which reveals to us the poetry in your soul.
Knockout.
Have an Award.

I thoroughly enjoy this series Rod !! We are living near sea level so we seldom see snow here - only the top of the mountains gets a dusting but we do get the cold that goes with it Smile This a lovely image you have here!

Superb mono picture Rod, and the dramatic sky adds to the image. Really we enjoyed our trip to Scotland and it helped the lovely weather as well.

I've always wondered why folk would choose to climb inhospitable, cold mountains. Photos like this series would be a good reason I suppose.SmileSmile
