It's a landscape that I've never visited but I feel I know every tuft of reeds through your uploads.

Your title is perfect for the image. Intensely cold yet visually intensely enticing.

Just a tad warmer overall than Blue Heaven, two images back, but only just as the sun rises that wee bit higher.
But the cold still seeps out of the screen......so off to make a cuppaWinkWink

It's interesting the different feel you can generate from the same image. Wonderfully atmospheric Dougie.

Gorgeous shot, Dougie. That touch of light really helps to distinguish the peak in this wonderfully wintry scene.

Not sure that I can tell the difference Dougie but it is still just as good.

Even better than the last version Dougie; that peak is now gloriously luminous.

A beautifully thoughtful title, which for me sums up the piece so very well. A real pleasure to both view and admire Dougie.

Beautiful cold landscape looks so good to me, in Australia very hot with lots of bush fires. Wonderful images love it Dougie.

Beautiful capture of this special place Dougie,you just have to be careful walking over the moor to get this type of shot, not the first time I have ended up waist deep in snow. Beautifully done my friend, hope you are well. Bill

Thanks for the concern Bill, but I have to be honest, I was sitting on the front bumper of the car when I took this shot.

I thought the previous version was very good but I think this is an improvement as there is more definition in the mountains and general detail.
I was there yesterday and the remaining snow looks pretty patchy compared to this image.

The rework is where its at Dougie...sat on your bumper or not I would have swapped places to this view....took my wife up this last time last year because she wanted to see the snow - all we got was fog n mist for 4 days apart from one day when we passed through the Glen on a bus - the drive kindly stopped for me to take a shot from aside the road Smile
