Lochindorb as the thaw set in the other weekend. I walked about 10 meters out to get this shot, no danger too great for your viewing pleasure you see (Ok, the water is only about a foot deep at that point!). It was so windy my youngest was standing on the smooth ice being blown along like she was wearing ice skates! I liked this dividing line in the ice that ran for about 30 metres. I had to use my body to shield the tripod from the wind.
There's another shot looking towards the castle which I've added as V2, I don't think it's good enough on its own but it does illustrate the different ice formation closer to shore.

Two excellent photos, Al!
I like the composition of V1 but it is V2 that gets top spot for me today with the rocks and ice patterns at the bottom of the shot!

That 30 metre demarcation line in the ice winds nicely along next to the shoreline and inviting one to follow it into the distance. The patterns one can find in ice on ponds and lochs can make such interesting images, almost abstract in nature at times. Along with the boulders they make an interesting f/g to shot across the ice to the Castle in V 2, and here it looks as if there are air bubbles trapped below the surface.
I can believe how cold it must have been, the wind whipping over that frozen surface.
Ronnie.

Two great shots and I can appreciate the lead in created in V1; but like some of the others, V2 is my favourite.

Thanks ****, Jim, Sylvia, Ronnie, Derek, Cliff, Mark and Jeremy! Smile
Ronnie, you are right, it was air bubbles in V2.
