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.

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

I bet you're great at crossword puzzles.

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

Very cool shot! I'd be happy to see all seven thousand. :)

Patsy said...

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

Patsy said...

No too bad, Mac.

Patsy said...

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.

Patsy said...

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

Have never heard of the word but I love the photo, Patsy!

Love your couloir picture, much better than a black and white one:)

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

Te he - see what you did there, Suzy!

Patsy said...

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

Patsy said...

Exactly, Oscar!

Patsy said...

It is, Linda. You'd want you glasses walking around there!
