Snow and Another Southeaster

Along with the succession of storms, the prevalence of strong and cold southeasterlies has been one of the features of the winter so far.  This morning's sunrise - this picture was taken shortly after eight and loos towards the hills of Morvern - did its best to warn us of what the day would bring, so when the light improved enough to see the hills of Mull and Morvern....

....the snow that capped them wasn't too much of a surprise.

Today's southeasterly, blowing at about force 6, is bitingly cold, but the light turns the sea a very beautiful grey-green.  At least it didn't rain during the morning, but that changed at around midday, and the afternoon was best spent with ones feet up in front of a cheerful fire.
