Skiddaw Massif

Blencathra. From the East, her summit stretches like a grin.
A rictus in cold stone, wind-riven.
Sharpening her edges, she crosses the dark screes.

The four winds have screamed in her mouth.
She has known the madness of horses,
She would like to kill you.


And Skiddaw. In mist-sodden silence,
Humped and massive, she sleeps on, adrift. Oblivious mother,
Deaf to her crazy child.

Daylight shreds her veils.
Where sheep graze her smooth brow, she seems almost to turn,
And as though still dreaming, lift them into cloud.

Amazingly moody pair of images complimented by a fantastic narrative. A dark and intense way to start the day!

Indeed and now all you need is a drop of Samuel Barber to make the mood complete.

V1 has the oppressive weight of the cloud. It's suffocating the land.

Super-moody images, in particular the cloud in V1 which tells its own tale. How to make a massif look - well, massive - even below the 3000m mark.
No snow remained there last week but there were still patches on Cross Fell.

Bill

No surprises there, then Grin

Mark- You are a jewel amongst men. I know the Barber well, have a live recording on DG ( LA Phil./Bernstein ). Such a nice thought, my man, thanks.
Beautiful music ....even if it does sometimes make me feel like opening a vein GrinGrin
