LAPC #222: Mountains are Calling

Mountains! I have always loved to see mountains, but preferably in good weather!

Here’s an image I took near Grindelwald in Switzerland in 1980 on an InterRail trip – fair weather mountain scene!:

…and now for mountains in Austria, backdrop to the Tyrolean mountain church of Heiligenblut:

Years later, I almost got an image of misty blue distant mountains, the Pyrenees in France:

Pyrenees from near Queribus castle

Now I need to trawl my archive further, I know I have images of mountains in Scotland, Wales, France, Romania, Cuba…..

So first up let’s look at the Cuillins on Skye, seen from Elgol on a bad weather day

Now we’ll go up to near the summit of Cader Idris in Snowdonia, Wales:

Now to to the Vercors massif in France, and some great roads!

And next, let’s see the Carpathians in Romania

and the Sierra Madre mountains in Cuba, seen from a 1960s Russian Antonov flying low over the beach:

Now we’re in the Tatra mountains in Poland on a really miserable weather day:

  1. A vertiable mountain-fest, Sue! Some excellent mountain images.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Amy

    Beautiful set of mountain images, Sue. Thank you for sharing you travels from Switzerland, to Austria, France… Fabulous adventures!

  3. Beautiful Mountain View’s and so many of them, lucky you to have seen them all

  4. they all look like Sounds of Music to me : )

  5. The only ones I have seen are those on Skye. My mother and I traveled there in 1974 and had a great uncrowded visit. I grew up among very high mountains in Oregon and lived through the volcanic eruption of one of them–Mt. St. Helens– which I viewed from my front porch.

  6. You have been around, Sue! Beautiful captures – Heiligenblut too!

  7. I love mountains in any weather. So atmospheric in bad weather. Some lovely photos here. I think I’m not going to have time to get anything together for this challenge, more’s the pity. That’s one fewer for Amy to worry about.

  8. So many wonderful mountain views Sue 🙂

  9. Thank you for sharing these…worlds I’ll never visit.

  10. Excellent. Love the steeple and peaks offset too.

  11. What an adventure ✨️

  12. A great mountain tour Sue! I think Skye was my favourite despite the poor weather – or quite probably because of it 😃

  13. The Tatry one almost made me homesick, Sue- not that that makes any sense! And I never got to see the Cullins. Love that shot. Happy weekend, hon.

  14. It’s hard to decide – if I was asked – but I really like the Cuillins on Skye photo. And that Antonov looked a bit battered and worn!
