Mountain Man

As you can see, we got up into the mountains yesterday. This was one I snapped of myself using my Sigma 10-20mm lens at about 12,000 feet. The air was noticeably a bit thinner up there and by the time we reached this point I was feeling a little fuzzy headed. The sun was great, though it did make it rather too easy to blow out the highlights when shooting with the snow around.

The tallest mountain in the UK is Ben Nevis at 4,409 feet, so up here I was getting on for three times that altitude and there were 12K to 13K mountains all around. I have a map and I’m hoping to be able to identify a few of the mountains I was seeing at a later date - too many to make a note of on the day.

I’ll post some more photos once I get some post processing done.
