The Colours of Autumn
Posted: Tuesday, 21 October 2008
Great photos, MM, I particularly like the third one up with the tapestry of trees in the background. Not too sure about the fairy washing, though... The autumn colours are supposed to be very good this year because of the weather we've had.

I can't think why MM, but someone just by my elbow is swooning over ancient teen romance by Loch Morlich, and there's a reptile called Uaine in the Skye Serpentarium *shudder* Stunningly evocative images.

Amazing photos, Mountain Man. You are so fortunate to be able to go to such incredibly beautiful places so easily! I am beyond jealous!

Not sure that the Cairngorms are quite so captivating as Mull. I am Scottish with a particular affection for the isles, so am allowed to say this. However, I have a question. Why are there no correspondents from Iona? Are they all asleep?

Hi kamala For me the thing about the Cairngorms is the sheer size of the place - there is a great sense of openness, emptiness and wildness that is hard to find anywhere else. Plus there are great tracks and trails to wander on when the weather is bad. I met another guy from Mull who was out on his bike when I was there on Saturday! Regarding Iona, well that's a good question - last blog post was a while ago. Maybe someone from Iona reading this will think "Hey, need to write something" I will be working there quite a bit over the next few months so even if there are no Iona blogs, I hope to be able to put some stuff up here. Cheers! MM

Are we not lucky to live in such a beautiful place?

Outlander, Hyper-B., the amazing thing about Mountainman is not that be lives in an area of the world which is breathtakingly beautiful, but he knows where those gorgeous views are, how to get there, and he is not afraid to drive/walk there. If I go in like this, I shall probably quite easily convince myself that I am jealous. If I had enough time and money to be able to persuade him to show me his world over six uninterrupted months, I would do it. Keep enjoying life, the beautiful world you visit, and here's to you, Mountainman! I can't believe that he only uses two pairs of walking boots a year (if I remember a previous comment of his correctly)!
