The 'Red peak', Stob Dearg catching the early morning light. I love the colours of Scottish winters and I reckon the light and reflection compliment the foreground foliage.

This was taken about an hour and half after sunrise but is the first of the light on the peak as the Sun has to climb above other 3000ft mountains first.

Please don't compare the two versions but V2 is the bigger picture only to show you the wee pool of water this series was taken from. V2 is only a reference shot..Smile

Thanks for looking.

Graham, V2 is purely to pinpoint the wee pool of water, it's not meant as a shot in it's own right..Smile

I've got a shot of Sron na Creise as well from this wee pool which I think is it's best viewpoint and will upload soon.

Perfect composition, the water from the left draws my eye right through to the top of the mountain then down to its reflection. Beautiful light, wonderful colours and superb detail - again Smile

Just by 200 miles Darren, mind there was some excellent light dotted around I noticed when I was out running this morning and was itching to get out but I'm making an effort with the training this year as there are a few races i won't to do well in coming up.
