Tempting fate?

I took these photos of a couple of fairly classic viewpoints in Glencoe to help demonsrate the lack of water in the rivers in the Highlands at the moment. I read Martyn's piece (below) and reckon that the photo of the Coe must have been taken on one of the wetter days recently.

The "river" Coupal and Buachaille Etive Mor from near Glen Etive road end.

The pinky bits are so coloured because for the majority of the time they're under water.

 The Three Sisters, Glencoe

And here, just by the A82 above the gorge, there's definitely water flowing, but it's a little hard to spot! Again, pink coloured rocks where more often than not you'd be wading to cross the river.

North easterlies forecast for the coming days. Chilly perhaps, but a generally outlook into next week.
