Bands of cloud.

22nd December 2022

Bands of fog lifted to different levels throughout the day.  There was a dampness in the air, with light drizzle at lower altitudes, this fell as snow above 1000 metres.  Occasional clear spells gave way to views of the Northern corries.  A few climbing teams and mountaineers were out and above, making the most of the calm winters day.
