Crikey Petr, you're absolutely irrepressible! I can see all the Munros in 2 seasons coming up!

The dawn pics are absolutely wonderful - as must have been the experience. (And of course no beasties at this time of year).

Keep posting! :clap: :clap: :clap:

Great stuff, Petr. Was up here at the weekend and good to see how different it looked then compared to the snowy landscape we experienced, visibility not dissimilar though.
Cheers, BV.
