Broken Promise

Time for a bit of colour on the page. This was taken just after new year on a morning when I wasn’t sure I’d be able to get across the pennines via Hartside. As it happened there was hardly any snow and the view was clear. It was brisk though. Just a few miles away and coming my way were grey snow clouds dumping on the hill tops just north of the pass.

After getting caught up in a blizzard last year I’d promised myself I’d not attempt the Hartside route if there was any chance of snow. I broke my promise.

  1. After getting caught up in a blizzard last year I’d promised myself I’d not attempt the Hartside route if there was any chance of snow. I broke my promise.

    …and got this fabulous piccy.

    If I’d done a painting like this the critics would have told me the colours are too intense and it just doesn’t happen in nature. But we know different, eh? I could rabbit on about colour balance and that bright streak of golden ochre in the middle distance but I think the work says it itself.

    Cheers
