Cairn Toul above the inversion
Mountain Hare, post roll in the snow
Broken Spectre and Inversion

Cairn Gorm summit
Braeriach and Cairn Lochan just poking out
Sgor an Lochain Uaine above a sea of cloud
Feathered rime 
Mr. Broken, The only skier today

Good Mountain Hare terrain
Another cold morning in the NE Highlands. Braemar reaching minus 10 C this morning. Up on the high Cairngorm summits there was a temperature inversion this morning. Coire Sneachda and Coire an Lochain were in a sea of cloud whilst the high summits poked into glorious sunshine. I made a good choice this morning to get into the sun for some wildlife photography. Cairn Gorm was busy so I wandered out to the east in search of solitude and mountain hares rolling in the snow! Another fine day to be out in the mountains. Light winds, sunshine and great views. What's not to like? Once again all the old snow is solid and well frozen. Some fresh stuff would be welcome.
