Weekly Photo Challenge: Mountains

Having grown up beside the sea, I came to mountains in later years whereupon I fell in love with all a mountainous landscape has to offer.  The peace, the quiet, the bliss of solitude, the freezing temperatures with nature at its most capricious.  Brilliant sunshine one day, blizzards the next.  The effort in getting to a peak, the exhilaration of flying down the mountain on a thick cushion of fresh snow and feeling forever young. . . . such is the thrill of winter in the mountains, mountains which are of themselves eternal landscapes of awe and majesty.
