Winter Mountains – Watercolour

Our Scottish mountains can look spectacular at all times of year but especially so in Winter. Most of them are gentle rounded hills with many steep buttresses and gulleys. There are also long ridges as shown towards the left. The right hand side of this small effort is typical of the sudden change from gentle to dangerous and last week a party of six was swept away in an avalanche. Four are dead and one critical. Its sad when the lure of this country can be so dangerous. May God grant those involved safer peaks to attempt in Heaven.
