‘From the Mamores ridge, spring’
Acrylic & Pastel, 2009, 20 x 40 cm

I was reminded of this little painting this morning while looking back at the photos I’ve taken on the hills over the last couple of weeks.  Only two weeks ago we were sat in bright warm sunshine looking north towards the Mamores from Beinn a’ Chrulaiste.  The mountains of the Mamores still had large patches of snow on their steep flanks making everything look very dramatic.   Last week the fine weather continued and I imagine much of that snow must have melted ….the hills last Thursday really looked to be in full summer mode.

But of course, this is spring time in Scotland and not all is quite what it seems ….on Tuesday this week, we woke up to snow falling!  It wasn’t lying on the ground here in Irvine but at 3 C it was a huge fall in temperature from the week earlier.  We had to travel across to Edinburgh that afternoon and my partner said she could see lots of snow on all the hills and mountains to the north.  We’re hoping to get out walking again next week so it’ll be interesting to see whether there is any of the recent snow left.
