Note: HM King Charles III (formerly known as His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales) has painted many watercolours of his favourite views around Balmoral. In this image, the dark forms of the trees in the foreground are contrasted with the lightly painted mountain rising in the distance. Sunlight breaks through the wintry snow-laden sky to create an ever-changing display of colours over the landscape. HM King Charles III painted the watercolour. This print was created when he was HRH The Prince of Wales.
