Location: Loch Achanalt, Strathbane, Scotland.

I have always struggled to find a satisfactory composition for this beautiful tree near the railway line at Loch Achanalt and I doubt a close approach is possible at any other time of year without very long wellington boots but here the ground had frozen solid permitting access to an ideal spot where all feels balanced. The beautiful caramel light reflected into the deepest shadows providing me with a wonderful contrast between sunlit frost and blue ice.

Pentax 67II, 90-180 zoom, 0.45ND grad, polariser backed off to half strength, f/22 at 1/8 sec. Velvia.

Crisp, brittle beauty, Ian, with the tree perfectly positioned to make the most of its reflection.

A perfect example of what a little thought can do for your photos, I love the way the ice finishes and the reflection sits nicely - well thought out.
