Just outstanding conditions in the Cairngorms right now. The forecast is set to continue fair for the next few days at least to get yourselves out there! Not a breath of wind, azure blue skies and firm snow. Just wish I was bit fitter to tackle something more challenging. More to follow when process more photos but in the mean time take a look at the these couple of photos & the vid - full-frame it for all its HD goodness :D
