Great light on the peak which really shows off the tooth like crags. I always think snow makes the hills look much higher than they usually do.

You have been out braving the conditions on the Moor again, Dougie: there's to be even heavier deposits on the Moor and these mountains again today.
As others have mentioned the sun catching on the summit is perfect in this otherwise shaded winter scene.

The light on the top brings out the chilly detail - a gorgeous scene Dougie with touches of brightness in the sky and on the frozen land.

A stunning scene Dougie. Love the bit of light on the mountain top and the sky is wonderful. It is truly like being there and feeling the elements........Sandy

A winter cloak sounds the perfect garment for this stunning wintery landscape Dougie.

The central clump of grasses is so important here Dougie but you knew that otherwise you would not have included them. An image so full of interest.

Beautifully coated with snow and some lovely blue sky as well. What a beautiful place this is all year round - as your shots show us. Moira

Such an inviting place to explore, Dougie, yet not so much of a friend if the weather is against you and you do not know the area like the back of your hand. A peak and scene that makes one realise how small man is, in all respects compared to the might of nature.

Hope you didn't have to hang around in the cold too long (as I suspect you might have) to capture this magnificent scene Dougie!
