Blue Cloud!

6th February 2020

A new phenomenon today in Lochaber – Strange blue cloud and a yellow bright thing in the sky. And you could stand up without fear of being blown away! It felt all a bit unnerving, but Im sure it won’t last too long!

There is a frozen rime crust on much of the snowpack at higher elevations and some old frozen snow lower down

Looking towards Aonach beag

Poor visibility at times at mid elevations

Skiing on east aspects, Aonach Mor

Rime glistening in the sun on the summit plateau, Aonach Mor

Riming on the summit plateau

Looking down Easy Gully, Aonach Mor. These steep East aspects have softened in the direct sun
