If the weather didn't look so good i'd say you are back in the northern reaches of Norway. ;-)

Northern Norway is also fabulous and the weather was mostly too. Would you like to be a bit more precise?

I have some shots from the other end - but they had no peaks in them.
Lake levels were very low when we were there.

Thanks eggs. I can see you enjoyed the Isle of Skye, which means it should probably be on my bucket list.
