A winter view looking west along Loch Ard in the Trossachs, and towards Ben Lomond just discernible in the distance. Despite the low sun, the car was registering 0 degrees and the wind made it feel like - 10.0........hands got so cold I could hardly feel the controls on the wee NEX.

My thanks to all who took the time to comment on The Reading Room.

Ronnie.

That beautiful light is deceptive.
I admire your knowledge of the mountains and lochs.
I think Loch Ard is where a little boathouse is often photographed
which I haven't seen for myself. Lots of colour in those trees
and the rock makes good f/g interest.
