Looking north up Sron Riach, 12 Dec 2009

11:14 on Saturday 12th December 2009. After an early start by bike at the Linn of Dee, where the temperature was -9°C, I eventually broke through the cloud layer on the slopes of Sron Riach where the temperature was significantly warmer. This stitched image shows cloud sitting in the Lairig Ghru, over the Cairn a Mhaim ridge, and cloud welling up in Coire Sputan Dearg. Two people whom I had overtaken shortly before parking the bike in Glen Luibeg, and again at the river crossing at the foot of Sron Riach can just be seen making their way ahead of me up Sron Riach. The highest point on Coire Sputan Dearg cliffs is just showing bright white above Sron Riach.
