Clouds in the hills

Just wanted to share a couple of photos from a walk in the hills over the last couple of weeks.

The fantastic thing about this time of year, weirdly, is the weather.

Yes, it’s cold and windy, but then when the clouds part, you can just sometimes get the most amazing views.

And cold clear days can produce a temperature inversion, where the clouds sink with the cold air, so that you can climb above them.

The Lake District in Cumbria, England is a brilliant place for looking at changing cloud formations at this time of year.

Another top place for clouds is the Cairngorms in Scotland, one of Britain’s wilderness locations.

This is a view from from Meall a Bhuachaille above Aviemore looking towards the Cairngorm plateau.

Proof that November and December can be great months for cloud watching!
