Couloir

A couloir is a steep, narrow gully on a mountainside. It's also a marvellous excuse to post yet another picture fro my Scotland trip (only 7,346 to go and you'll have seen them all)

It might not actually be of a couloir, but it's definitely a mountainside. Or a hill. Anyway, there was steepness involved.

  1. Great pic, Patsy. To me a couloir sounds more like a delicious dessert that one might be served at a gala dinner :)

    1. It does, Nicola. I rather fancy a mountainous helping of couloir.

  2. A great picture, although it must have involved some precarious balancing.

    1. It wasn't too bad, Maggie - if it's really precarious I'm not likely to go there and if I did, I'm not sure the pictures would come out.

    1. Just started another adventure, Rachel - so there'll be a lifetime's supply of scenic photos coming up.

  6. Great picture - it looks like a barranco to my Tenerife-trained eyes.

    1. It might well be, Lizy. Geography isn't one of my strong points.
