Gladman you have surpassed yourself; I love this photograph - a perfect composition (have managed not to say wow but really wanted to). tjj Posted by tjj

Thanks tjj.

The thing about these high upland sites is that - unless you happen to find a truly massive cairn up there - the monument itself is often very, very much secondary to where it is, the location. What can you see... is this cairn the highest in the area etc? Is it overlooking a spring, a nascent river, a source of life?

That's a wonderful picture.

Postie may be in the mountain goat department (where is he?), but I'm certainly not. However, the call of these places can't be resisted, fit or not - as your recent Pen y Fan trip tells.

With you entirely as ever on this subject.

Onward and upward, then. Or something like that.

Per ardua ad astra? :-)

By the way, your recent Pen y Fan fieldnotes were enough to get me back up there yesterday.

Isn't that the RAF's motto? Only guessing. GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN
