Frosty morn

Brrr, it’s a frosty one this morning and after a week of tech and server rooms, time to head out for a change of scenery and enjoy the crisp cold air.

Camera at the ready, a flask full of hot coffee and a great excuse to try out some of my new winter walking gear, I headed on up.

Loving what the cold air and bracing winds has done to the plateau grass.

Resting up with a cuppa and enjoying the views. The icy winds was so fierce up here I was struggling to keep my camera steady!

Couldn’t help but think that it’s all a bit Middle-Earth-esq up here this morning –  Probably helped by the fact that I ‘m walking and listening to The Lord of the Rings audio book  on my iPhone. Eek, better duck, spies of Sauron…no wait…just a few grouse 🙂

Changing audio, Eddie Vedders ‘Into the wild’ album was the perfect soundtrack as I walked on.

A great start to another year of trail walking. Oh and JT, just to add in a bit of retro to this post, was listening to some C64 remix tunes on the way down 🙂
