I took this in the week of bad weather before Christmas. It's a fishing lochan on Dava moor. The camera is facing directly into the wind which was streaking ice crystals across the surface towards me. The apparent shadow to the right of the jetty (is is lopsided, yes!) is actually due ti ice thickness and the wind blowing, rather than strong sunlight (the sun was nowhere to be seen that day!).

Love the muted colours and the moody look to this scene , with the wind travelling in your direction I would have been tempted to use a longer exposure to get the cloud streaks running in line with the pier but I love movement in images

Did you return with a catch of frozen (fish) fingers!Tongue I like the 'Z' shaped composition, Al. I like Jeremy's suggestion as well. Do you try different combinations of shutter/aperture/Iso?

As Dave says, the Z shape mapped out by the various elements make this image for me, and the cold does just seem to seep out.
Back to the car and a wee toddy on getting home???WinkWink.

Thanks for the comments Kathryn, Leon, Jeremy and Dave!
Jeremy and Dave, I didn't try too many other combinations for several (some even good!) reasons. I can't go lower than ISO 100, I already had a 4 stop ND and a 0.6ND grad in place and I was struggling to keep the tripod steady in the teeth of the very strong wind, I kept it at f/11 because that's where my lens was sharpest and I was worried about going to f/16 softening it too much when combined with what I expected to be subtle camera movements already. I was sure my 10stop filter would show too much camera movement though in truth I didn't try being too cold! Maybe if I had, I'd have got the cloud streaks I was hoping for too... I'm obviously not suffering enough for my art! GrinWink

Thanks Lee Smile

Thanks too Jeremy, that's useful gen. I can get those for my Feisol tripod and now I see the utility! Previously I thought they were just for fending off aggressive wildlife...
