Mountains

Blue Skye, Scotland

When we were on Skye, Scotland, a couple of weeks ago, we stopped on our ’round island road trip’ to have a picnic.  I’m not sure that we have had one, with such a breathtaking view before.  I think…..we were looking at Applecross on mainland Scotland, with the little island of Rona in the foreground, but I’m not a 100% sure.  The sky had a slight haze, which made everything in the distance have an ice blue tint, it was far more beautiful than I could really capture, but they are a lovely reminder of a beautiful picnic.

Beyond The Sign, The Highlands, Scotland

 

On of my favourite road trips, its starts from the green road sign, at which we turn for Fort William and this time ends just before Glencoe Mountain Resort, Scotland.  Photos taken from the car window May 2016. 

 

Cloudy High Road to Glen Coe, Scotland

We have been to Suffolk for the week-end and unfortunately….no internet, so I sorted some photos.  We had a lovely visit, as the sun shone all week-end, lots of exploring…..so even more photos to sort.  The above photos, are therefore not Suffolk, but of our last trip through Glen Coe, December 2016.  Every time we drive up to and through the Glen, the weather is different, this time is was very cloudy, beautiful in its own right 🙂

Grindelwald Village, The Jungfrau, Switzerland

On our first visit to the top of the Jungfrau, in Switzerland two years ago, we stopped at one of the mountain villages on our way back down.  There are several stops that you can make if you fancy an ice-cream or just have a wander around and then catch the next train down.  We choose Grindelwald, as it seemed one of the larger stops.  The weather at the top of the Jungfrau, had been spectacular, we had gone through the clouds and it was a perfect blue sky.  But as we sat in a cafe garden eating our ice-cream…..yes we had ice-cream, it was wonderful and so was the coffee…..the cloud started to thicken and it brought a chill to the air, the weather here can change in a flash.  So we finished and walked back to the train station and caught the next train, we were just in time, the rain came down, that mountain rain is cold stuff, and I for one, was pleased to get on the train.  But we had spent a couple of hours enjoying Grindelwald, with is amazing mountain views, I couldn’t stop taking photos of them and that ice-cream was yummy……

A lone walker on the top of the world – The Jungfrau

On our first visit to the top of the Jungfrau in Switzerland, 2015, we had beautiful weather, last years visit 2016, well it was a wipe out, nothing to see just cloud, but you take your chance.  Looking through the photos, I realise I have posted very little, so I thought I would post a few, as the trip was pretty spectuclar in 2015, we will not mention 2016 🙂
