Beautiful light and sun on the Mountain Hares
It was a sparkling, sunny and windless day in the Cairngorms National Park and most Highland areas. Solitude amongst those wonderful Mountain hares. I spent over 5 hours amongst these wonderful creatures. It probably took me the same amount of hours processing my images!
Afternoon sun across the Cairngorm range

Fabulous firm snow
The Monadhliath offer some wonderful wildlife aswell as much quieter hills than their bigger, more famous neighbours across Strathspey. The forecast was for some lovely weather and calm winds. Perfect for Wildlife Photography.

Beautiful blue skies overhead

Plenty of food!
After all the rough weather I guess our wonderful wildlife welcome the sunny and kind days as much as us humans. The hares were lounging about quite a bit today. All the hares I saw today were pretty much in full winter coat still.

Cairn Gorm, Coire an t-Sneachda and Fiacaill  Ridge
We've had some good melt/freeze cycles last few days and this has firmed up the snowpack nicely. It was a cold frosty morning in Aviemore but the sun was warm at lower altitudes. y the afternoon the sun was out over The Cairngorms and I had fab views across Strathspey.


Another lazy period
Being in touch with nature, wildlife and up on the hills is a sure winner in these grim times ahead. Photographing the hares switches your brain to better times ahead.

Good pose
