At the bottom of each post there is the word "comments". If you click on it you will see comments made by followers, and if you follow the instructions you may also comment and I always welcome that. I have found many people overlook this part of the blog which is often more interesting than the original post!

My blog nick-name is SIR HUGH. I'm not from the aristocracy - my middle name is Hugh which relates to the list of 282 hills in Scotland compiled by Sir Hugh Munro in 1891. I climbed my last one (Sgurr Mor) on 28th June 2009

Photoshop painting and Arnside in the snow

Here is another update on the painting. There is still work to do. The tree behind the houses has to be detailed and various other bits of fine tuning.

Arising from my comments on the last post here are two pics taken today from Arnside Knott. Normally we can see the full range of Lake District hills but today it looked as though snow was blowing from that direction.


  1. We may have a lot more snow than you at present, but at least you are getting up a hill which is more than we can.

  2. Grrr, grrr, grrr goes the Yeti. I believe the original was not only silent but invisible.
