Hi all

Since Jim Ramsay took me up the Aonach Eagach ridge yesterday and posted some pictures i thought in posting a few of mine was a great day out and was the highlight walk of this year despite the fact i never knew just how daunting it was until i went for it wee got some nice views plus a sunset at the very end then a night walk off the hill in the dark

I am still sore today after this big walk

Many thanks Jim for the encouragement ans support to get me through my toughest challenge yet on the scottish hills

Comments welcome on my images

Regards

Peter

I really like the B&W shots, very atmospheric

Also glad that I wore the orange fleece as it fair sticks out in your shots and gives a real sense of scale.

Whoa - 2nd last shot of Aonach Duch is an eye catcher! So dark, and so Glen Coe.
