It was a dank and murky day in Lochaber today, not the best for photography. The surface of the really hard and icy snowpack started to soften very slightly in the milder and more humid conditions. Other than that, not much change from the previous few days.

The view from the of the hills this afternoon from an altitude of about 100 metres. 

The view from Carn Beag Derg at 1000 metres. 

Orange Peel on the path. The orange peel dropper, having been scared away from Creag Meagaidh, has obviously paid Lochaber a visit. On a serious note please don’t! 

Temperature, wet bulb and humidity at the top of the quad chair (altitude 900m) on Aonach Mor for the previous 24 hours. Conditions changed significantly this morning, the wet bulb temperature rose above freezing and the humidity went up to 100%.
