Darren enjoying some late season snow

Plenty of bright spells

A wintry looking Coire an Lochain
What we come for

and this of course

Another snow shower
Catch me quick!

Goat Track


Spot the climbers

Coire an Lochain

Cairngorm plateau

Is that the back of the snow?
Darren was out with me today on a wildlife photography workshop in The Cairngorms. I don't think he was expecting below freezing temperatures and fresh snow above 900m at the end of May. Neither was I! A cold snap for a few days before warming up by the weekend. Despite the challenging conditions for photography, we managed to get ptarmigan to photograph. They did make us work for the images today. We covered a big chunk of the Northern Corries and plateau before we saw our first ptarmigan high up on the plateau. There was some good sunny spells in between the snow showers. A big transformation from poor visibility to bright May sunshine. The Cairngorms will always deliver. Just like it's fantastic wildlife.
