The temperatures dropped much lower last night, at last! Any snow was completely frozen this morning. It was a beautiful clear skies morning. Light winds. Beautiful. A great day for some wildlife photography. This time of year it's great to get the ptarmigan with bright sun shining on their wonderful pure white feathers. Best places to see these masters of the Cairngorms is where the best snow areas are and sheltered from the winds. High level clouds creeped in during the afternoon and the winds increased.
Looking good next weekend. Colder , at last! We may even get some fresh snowfall!
