Sketching in big gloves!!

Happy New Year. An Teallach from Opinan.

Dave, Einich and I spent the New Year in the Far North before returning back to Glencoe. The weather was a mix of blizzards and beautiful sunshine, but always well below freezing with a biting wind, bringing the temperatures down even further. Despite the extreme cold, Dave managed to stand for hours in the pursuit of the perfect photograph, and I managed to sketch in big gloves stuffed with handwarmers. Conditions underfoot was quite hard going, the soft deep snow meant we had to break trail most of the time. Luckily I managed to borrow some snow shoes which made walking a little easier, although it does help if you remember to bring your walking poles.! (I'd forgotton mine).
Einich in survival mode!

it's amazing how dogs can suddenly spring into action when a sandwich appears.
