Loch Morlich, shortly after sunset. It all looked so promising when I set off from home but before I arrived the sun fell behind a bank of low cloud which swallowed up all the bright colours there might have been. The wind didn't die down either. This was shot using the 'cloudy' colour temperature setting of my camera. Bit more snow on the hills than earlier in the week and very cold on the lochside.

The long exposure has calmed the surface of the loch and the cloudy setting has added a little warmth to the cold scene.

Like the colour which enhances the mood created by the long exposure Alan.
