Snow Lake Karacoram Mountains

I really like this Malcom. There is literally ads of atmosphere and a real sense that of isolation

Thanks a lot for that Billy, much appreciated.

You've really caught the vastness and bleakness Malcolm. Super!

Thank you Marjorie, I appreciate that , the areas out there are so vast it's hard even with photos to give a true impression of the place.

Very bleak, very well portrayed Malcolm, but I don't wish to be there!

Thanks Carole, it is bleak but early in the journey at lower levels you see some nice green areas.

Thanks Dennis much appreciated.

The magnificence must be over powering've set a scene of isolation and wilderness.

Thanks a lot Fiona, Dennis and Holger for your kind comments much appreciated.

Thank you Gudrun, yes the distance, light and rock type all produce different effects out there

Beautiful work, Malcolm..My favourite sort of scenery...You have really captured the essence of bleakness and isolation..the figures do give one a great sense of scale , and enhance the feeling of remoteness!

Thank you for that Chandra , much appreciated

You've depicted those mountains so well and the vastness of the place Malcolm.

Thank you Val glad you like it much appreciated .

Considering the fact that you have actually been here, Malcolm, it makes your painting even more awesome. Love it! P.s. Thank you for your kind comments on my paintings.

Thank you so much for all the comments on my work Jennifer, much appreciated

Hang on Studio Wall

This painting is based on one of my trips out to Pakistan and into Baltistan, I travelled up the Biffo and Hispar Glaciars and across an area call Snow Lake which is a huge wilderness od snow, early explorers thought it was an Ice Cap but the two glacires flow into ti they form the longets continuest system outside the polar system 80 miles long. The area of Snow Lake is so vast people become mere specks very quickly. The mountain in the painting were actually big peaks in thier own right so you have an idea of the scale of the place, it was an awsum place to be, (except when bad weather hit us)
