Rain approaching Sgurr an Utha
Many walkers and climbers spend much of their time hunting out their next Munro (a Scottish mountain over 3,000 feet), however there are many very good mountains between 2,500 feet and 3,000 feet known as Corbetts.
One such mountain is Sgurr an Utha, which can be found a couple of miles west of Glenfinnan. The attraction of Corbetts for me is that they are slightly less crowded than many of the Munros and therefore provide a better photographic opportunity.
On Friday this week, we (my wife Sue and I) took a trip up Sgurr an Utha. The weather was kind to us. We had a rain free day although we could see rain passing close by on all sides.
This was a fine opportunity to try the Olympus OMD EM-5 in a mountain situation.
