More snow.

The cold front and almost 48 hours of continuous rain last week, also dumped a huge amount of snow on the Berg. I was only able to take these photos this morning as the Berg has been covered by a hazy cloud since Friday when it stopped raining, so some of the snow had already melted.

I took several photos to make two panoramas. The one above shows Giants Castle on the far left, (the southern end of this photo). 



This one shows more of the Central Berg.


Zoomed in shot of Giants Castle, 3000 meters. Some of my favourite fishing spots lie about 15km from the foot of Giants castle and it takes me almost an hour, on good roads, to get there. Gives you an idea of how far away I was when I took this photo.

 Behind Giants Castle the Berg turns inland in South Westerly direction, then after more than a hundred kilometres turns southward again for several hundred more kilometres.



Snow on part of the central Berg at 3000 meters plus.



More towards the north, these trees in the foreground are about 45km from the mountain. Another cold front has moved in this afternoon after a balmy spring day when I went to work in a short sleeved shirt.

Great shots Phillip - jeepers, after all my complaining about being cold I should be ashamed of myself ... it looks REALLY chilly in your part of the world ...

Not so unusual for snow to appear in the late spring. We've had snow as late as May 15th.

Spectacular pictures! It looks very much like the area where I live here in Montana. I love the mountains!
