Spring sunrise over Loch Garten. Spring time but still icy cold with fresh snow falling. At least I got my first sunrise of the year before work! May have to wait several more weeks for the timing to be right after the clocks move forward next week Grin

Well worth the early rise - good morning colours and reflections of them in the ice

Spring but blooming cold not blooming flowers!!Tongue

Lovely sky colour, Al, and extra texture from the ice on the reflected colour. The shapes are subtle but concentrate nicely on the middle of that lower third.

I know Kel, if I were then I'd have summoned an osprey to seize a fish from the loch at just that moment! Grin

Superb light, reflections and comp, Al. The beauty of the area you live in is breathtaking - just the place to try ones hand at landscape photography, rather than just stalk game-birds LOL

Lovely shot Al I like the way the image seems to emanate out from the brighter spot and the colours are spot on
