From last weekend on the way to Skye. It was so cold that frost formed on my camera strap as I watched. I had the spot to myself before hearing voices behind me. It was one of those voices who told me what temp his car was reading. Brhhhh - - -

Simply stunning image - just love those crystal clear tones in the fg and then the mountain emerging from the gloom in the bg - enchanting.

This is exceptional, Melanie. A gorgeously atmospheric image. The mist allows the brittle tree to stand out so well and adds great stature to the distant mountains.

Sensationally sublime if that's possible, tremendous work on the frozen moor. The colour just hitting the Black Mount but not the tree, worth it's weight in gold a shot like this. I'll bet your wee heart went bump when you saw this vision in front of you.

All the very best Melny, look forward to seeing the rest of your trip to the Misty Isle.

Worth the frozen feet and diesel - you forgot to tell that bit!
As all above say - a sublime shot that is remarkable for its originality as well as it's beauty. I'm hoping you'll also have some close shots of those frosted trees - we sailed past some in the car and I nearly yanked the hand brake on but had to get to station.
