I love to see this glorious winter light Dougie. The colour of the loch is amazing. A great composition

Didn't see V2 when I commented (it probably hadn't loaded) but I love what you have done with it.

V2 for me...the contrast helps.

Yes, it looks icy, but just thinking to travel from Japan to Scotland, then refusing to get out to use one of those formidable japanese cameras.... will they be allowed to enter homeland again???

A wonderful wee piccy my friend - and I think you know, I'd have gotten out of the car, even if wearing only my beautiful Scotland shirt! Smile

Certainly looks cold out there Dougie, all made by the light on the water. For me V1 works the best but prehaps just lift the water a bit.
Version 2 for me the trees are too dark in the mid ground a draw the eye

V2 has the added icy sparkle . A beautiful capture.( daughter in Gala sitting an exam and we hope to see her safely home tonight . She had a spin on the motorway just after the Friarton bridge on Sunday a.m. !!!) Sad

So is she doing textiles then? The weather is not the best for travelling and you'll be happy to have her home again.

Beautifully cold snowscape. I prefer the more muted v1. The contrast in v2 reduces the snow effect in the far trees too much for me. Excellent capture.

Gosh, it does look cold there, Dougie, with that heavy sky over the snow locked land: some lovely light though just breaking through.
V 1 for me.

Just seen v2 which wasn't there when I first commented and not sure which! I think v2 on balance. Hope you are all ok up there with those 100 mph winds. Sounds awful.

With each day your images are getting colder and colder. A great image Dougie, do like that little bit of light sneaking through..........Sandy

I suppose the tourists were actually watching you in amazement that anyone would want to be outside in this weather . . .
V1 for me, too, unless four and a half hours of exam-watching this morning have made my eyes go funny.

Sorry, laughing too much to comment seriously, God bless the Japanese. A nation created for group tourism... With central heating provided every mountain.

I'm with Richard, V1 but with a bit more sparkle on the water. Scotland in the raw, with those distant pylons providing a sense of scale.

Lovely depth to this Dougie. Prefer the greater luminosity of V2.
