Husky sledding in Cairngorm Jan 2010 
There was another meeting for Cairngorm Husky Sledding Competitions in January. This year the huskies were able to use the sleds instead of wheels because there was enough snow. The event attracts lots of visitors and the conditions were ideal for sledding, skiing, togganning and photography.

Autumn skies at Parkburn 
Some of the skies in Grantown in autumn are spectacular. I think this is because of the clear atmosphere and the cloud formation as the sun goes down in the west.
