One from last year. Early December when the first ice on Loch Morlich was melting. No impressive ice shapes so I stepped out on a chain of rocks to balance me on a rock and the tripod on some ice. With the wind stirring the water you can't see where it joins the ice. The mooring hoop has featured in some of my other images of this loch but that day it was a lot colder, with just a hint of colour in the darkening sky. I was walking the kids and the dog on this occasion too, we met a few other folk with cameras but strangely no one else balancing precariously on slippery rocks aside from me and the kids (before you label me irresponsible dad, the water is only a couple of inches deep where we were!).

Luvverley stuff mate. Nice dusting of snow on the hills, bit of colour in the sky and good foreground, spot on.

A winter landscape just oozing cold, Alan: again, the portrait format works so well here carrying the eye over the icy loch to the snow capped hills.

Beautiful image the sky draws you right in with the hint of blue and then the dramatic clouds above.

The 'darks' make a good sandwich for the hills, Al, and a lovely depth. The purple and blue tones are very harmonious and the reflections on the ice/water make fine lead-ins. Now if you could get one of your 'neglected' children to skim a stone into the scene..... there's a thought for another one.

Cheers Dave! I like your skimming idea, the problem was the ice extended so far any stones would have bounced on it first and if they stood far enough out on a rock I bet they'd have fallen in Grin. I must teach them to skim; they usually give up trying and just chuck stones in, wetting me and often spoiling some very still reflective water I'm trying to shoot!
