Warm in the Sun

7th March 2017

Sunshine and light showers today, wintry above 700 metres, but deteriorated in the afternoon as a band of light rain arrived. Little change in the snowpack from yesterday, other than the breakable crust at lower levels was becoming tiresome. However, the more extensive snowdrifts above 650 metres were weight bearing. Nice in the sun while it lasted.

(Below)  The sunny Fannaichs. Today’s snow profile location was just below and right of the left hand summit; north top Beinn Liath Mor Fannaich.(Above)  The sparsely covered southern slopes of the Beinn Dearg mountains.(Above) Thickening cloud over An Teallach, drifting in from the South-West ahead of a band of rain later in the afternoon. Ullapool and Loch Broom visible on the right with a snow free Beinn Mhor na Coigich behind.(Above)  These Ptarmigan preferred to remain in the shade – weird!(Above)  Lovely cloudscapes this morning. Looking east to Ben Wyvis in the background, shrouded in cloud.
