You got a better view on Carn na Caim than I did yesterday :lol:

Nice job - it's a long old trudge along the top there :D :clap:

Congratulations on the 150 - only 1 more to half way! :D

Thank you James :D very poor visibility and whiteout sometime on the East as well most of the walk, just posted photos from the clearer views which was very rare on the tops that day.
If I had a big big ZOOM I would spot you on the hills opposite :D

Thank you Jackie :D I was lucky that I at least saw the summits in the time I got them, most of the walk on the top was just white, white, white...almost not visible even the posts :roll: :D
I dont know about 302 Munros in total :wink:

Thank you :D I was happy always in the moments without the whiteout to refresh my eyes sight and make some shots quickly until the change to white again...almost blind there on top in the white and white around most of the time :lol:
