A bit more mountain

You may have noticed that blogging here has been a little thin recently. That's because I've been on holiday. It was glorious. There will be a full post or indeed series of posts in due course; for the moment you get just this.


If you can work out where that is without cheating you're doing well.

I plan to catch up on my email and blog comment backlog in due course.

A vintage year, for which the title must be Oh, and we were Gone / Kings of Oblivion. Something for everyone. Here, after review, is what catches on my mind. But first, my favourite mountain picture of the year. Other reviews of the year: ATTP; me in 2015. Not a review of the year: Eleven Years Of…
A follow up to the brilliantly successful the year in stoats: 2014. There can be no doubt about the picture of the year: If you're looking for a review of the climate-type events of the year then something like ATTP's will be of use. This is one post per month from me, chosen without specific…
Crandles kindly reminded me that I had three £100 bets with him; they're formalised here (an earlier version at £67 each is here), as: Crandles offers 3 separate bets on the average of [2012, 2013 and 2014] (to be above/below 4.294, I take the high side), of [2013, 2014 and 2015] (4.119, ditto) and…
At this time of the year, as I cycle past the rape fields (this isn't a reference to some Balkan horror, just the plant), I take note of the dying of the yellow, for it signifies that the spring recolte is once again due. I measure my life by the passing of such seasons: the winter league; tideway…

Nice pic.

(Define cheating and I'll give it a go.)

"If you can work out where that is without cheating you’re doing well."

Somewhat above sea level.

I win!

Now, having cheated, my other guess would have been wrong. Out by maybe 500 miles - would have said , well, I can't say without giving it away can I?

Hmmm. Looking south from seven thousand feet but with a lot more mountains in view, so it can't be the Brenta Dolomites.

Austria. Or Wyoming. Or British Colombia. Or Tibet. Or Mordor.

Austria but wearing Italian boots.

Or vice versa.

Is it cheating to look at the ice in the foreground?

If not, then somewhere cold and way up high I'd say. Like Nepal or maybe Denmark.

Wherever they are we can be rest assured that he walked there to reduce you know what.. Only lefty white middle class luvvies can manufacture this intensity of hypocrisy.
