Quadrille: Bothy Tales

The snow is fresh underfoot,
the colours of loch and sky
so soothing on the eye when
we hear distant caperceille.

The bothy at Ryvoan Pass
offers shelter among mountains
for all who love those special
places where wanderer’s tales
curl around the fire.

I took these photographs last September, when we were hiking up Mount Cairngorm in the Scottish Highlands. The sun had been shining as we were making our way up the mountain when some clouds rolled in with light rain, creating a beautiful rainbow between the mountains.
