Hare on watch
Enjoying the sun
Plenty of ski tourers out at the moment
Nice light
Looking fine
Think I will have a nap in the sun now
Another glorious morning in The Northern Cairngorms. Light winds and blue skies the order of the day. The full cover of snow in the Northern Corries is just fabulous. The windslab below 900m is a real pleasure to walk on now it is consolidating a bit. A great day for some wildlife. I took advantage of the light winds, bright sun and beautiful light to catch our Cairngorm specialities in their winter coats, ptarmigan and mountain hare. Some nice moments for photography, no cold fingers today. It won't be long before the hare's and ptarmigan will be changing into their Spring coats. Until then it's a great time to enjoy the rest of winter. I still have plenty of free dates for winter courses in March. If you want to photograph the wildlife then may be come on one of my wildlife and photography days.
