HFF....a lying down fence=path?

A bit cheeky!
Cerro Torre in Argentine Patagonia.....a place that blows me away!

Sorry to be a bit slow..left handed typing as my right is still painful and in a large plaster cast! My thumb joint was destroyed by arthritis. The orthopaedic surgeon removed a bone, drilled another bone, re-routed a Tendon, and removed a ganglion. It is sore and is in a cast for 6 weeks, then a splint!
Wishing everyone safety..,Covid is insane at present. Sending hugs and best wishes...Diana

Spectacular scenery, Diana.
Have you had an operation for carpel tunnel syndrome, or have you broken your wrist? I remember when I had a swan-necked fracture on my right wrist. It was so annoying not being able to write properly. I even changed my signature to be left handed, with the bank's permission, so that I could sign cheques. This is before the use of plastic of course.

My thumb joint was totally arthritic so they removed a bone, rerouted a tendon and also removed a ganglion. 6 weeks in plaster, then 6 weeks in a splint! Driving me crazy!
Thanks for asking, Amelia.

if I did not read or look at the mountains in the back ground I would say 100% South island NZ, I hope that this opp is all you have to go through. I shuddered today when I saw the news of Covid 19 in SA. It proves it only takes one uncaring or maybe unwitting person to spread it all about.

HFF from the West watching in anguish the fall out of this. You keep safe and locked away.

This a phenomenal shot Diana.............beautifully composed and sharp from front to back. The light and colours are just wonderful.

Those majestic mountains make a very impressive backdrop for the beautiful trees and the fantastic path (sorry, lying down fence)!

This image definitely comes under the category "I wish I'd taken that".

Well, at least you can say that you've had an "interesting" year so far. Stay safe and well and i hope you mend quickly..!!

PS: You can hardly tell you typed your narrative left-handed. The type looks pretty much the same as it did before you had your operation :-)

Diana, this looks like it's out of the Lord of the Rings: the landscape of one's wildest fantasies and a place peopled by fairy beings! The fence-path that snakes through this magnificence feels like it's pointing the way to the Cerro and making it look attainable despite its forbiddingly sharp peaks. I love the beautifully gnarled trees and the golden grasses, too.
Again, best wishes for a quick and easy recovery. Just the description of the surgery is enough to make me sweat ... Sounds like you will need a lot of patience and determination, too. Try not to get discouraged and concentrate on your goal: I'm sure regaining use of your thumb is a big enough carrot to lead you to the moon and back!
