MORE Loch Morlich ice! This time it was forming rather than melting and the earlier hour has given a warmer setting. I was en-route to the Green Lochan but nipped over to check my favourite rocky bit of the loch. There were these lovely curved air bubbles around the rocks. Another tog was already there SLR in hand, toking on a fag and snapping away at the view but missing what was almost under his feet!

Dont you just Scotland.

The rocks with the air bubbles really draw you in, the pull your interest right into the snow capped mountains.

Really like this shot.

It's just as well the other tog didn't stand on the ice here and spoil a wonderful lead inSmile. I like the way trapped air links the rocks together to allow the eye to wander towards the mountains. The frosty sprinkle tops it off.

Excellent winter shot with the portrait format seeming so appropriate: as you say, the air bubbles under the ice around the boulders (or snow dusted Christmas puddings) makes such interesting patterns.
But what comes over from this scene is the coooooooold +++.

The snow dusted rocks echo the snow dusted mountains well, Al. Detailed foreground and a sinuous lead in. Beautifully exposed.

Picky..... could you have got all the right hand rock in? Smile

Definitely worthy of more credit this one , I love how the tops of the lead in stones are dusted with a slight covering of snow which is then mirrored on the peaks in the distance Smile

I am always amazed at how many people don't see the little details in the landscape, just the big picture. This is delightful.

Well, I tried for ages Dave but my current kit won't go wide enough and if I stepped back I got another FG rock partly in the frame so clipping the R one was the best compromise I could find and still keep the ice bubbles on the left. All that should change after Christmas when I upgrade my kit WinkGrin

Thanks Joline, You certainly see the details judging by your portfolio! I popped back today and the bubbles were even more extensive plus the ice a lot thicker so I was able to get some different comps which I may post once I've worked on them. I then walked in 5km to a remote loch in the hills but the light was just too flat by then, might get some mono images out of it though! Smile

The air pockets around the rocks create some wonderful shapes Alan. Soft light and the sprinkling of snow all help to create a superb image.
