This is just a superb landscape! The light gives warmth and yet the cracked ice tells how cold it is. Superbly done! John Smile

I have only been to Scotland a couple of times, and both have been summer tours, but would have loved to have seen this! Wink

fantastic shot, wonderful fractal patterns in the ice, the whole thing reminds me of our winter 2012 but never had that sort of landscape.

Another beauty, Alun, the blue/white ice gives that extra foreground interest and balances the upper part of the image so well.

Love that foreground Alun. The fringe of ice shards around the water really makes the image.

Further up from the falls are so many images, winter has made the difference for you here. Plus the talent to use the light and composition across the cold water and the necklace of ice around the rocks. A fine birthday cake for Creise the oft forgotten mountain which exists in the shadow of Buchaille Etive Mor.

You had a well deserved great trip to Scotland and made the most of it too Alun.

Thanks Dougie. I've had more than my fair share of rain in the past but on this occasion the weather was ideal for four wonderful days.
