All and all a great day out with superb weather and views.
Looking at the first picture it would seem that the sun wash shining relentlessly, however there are some fantastic atmosheric shots of the darkening clouds above the surrounding hills and valleys. All in all you had good weather though unlike the mists I have been in lately.
Is that the Ben More giant surveying the landscape

I must make the effort to do more self-portraits. I don't carry a tripod and haven't been on many tops at the same time as other walkers so far, still plenty to do yet.

These pictures look good . I'll go back and do them in better weather I think.

Jock, enjoy these two, but I think Alan and I will agree that your legs will remember them for a while

The clouds may have rolled in on Binnein but this still knocks spots off the day I had on this pair last year. Quite a few unfortunate incidents befell me that day.

Sssshhh Gaffr, don't tell anyone that I actually floated down to the summit!
