...the sun was shining through the smallest of gaps in the leaden sky, it always seemed to be a couple of miles ahead of me, so on I drove North.

A real feeling of desolation hangs over this area and the heavy skies enhance it! Thanks goodness for the snow and the little chinks of sun which put life into it! Greay moody scene, very Scottish!

For a long time I have not been the first to comment on your picture. I hoped for today, but... Well, makes it easier for me - Marie just said, what I would have said had I been first.
From a longing heart the kindest regards,

A cracking image best viewed large. You don't say when it was taken, surely not recently.

Magnificent, Dougie. There's a tiny patch of gold in the very foreground that points up the coldness of the snow on the mountain.

Tiny patch of light making the rest of the scene seem even more bleak. Magnificent, icy cold image, enough to freeze the marrow in your bones.
