...suddenly the weather has turned particularly cold in Scotland, wind from the East always means it's colder. The grasses take on a ginger, cinnamon colour and the lochans have a patina of ice. Hardly a cloud in the sky to compliment the mountains dusted with fresh snow, the deep blue of the sky is a harsh cold message from outer space.

What a great sight on a stormy, wet morning! Absolutely brilliant. The ice on the surface gives it a slight ghostly feel - love it.
Had a long walk of about three hours yesterday, and now my head feels a little lighter. When the storm ceases I'll have another walk - perhaps the virus doesn't like fresh air.... (hopefully!)
Have a nice weekend,
Johanna

Those delicate grasses in the foreground seem to collect your vision and sweep it through the image into the distance. Lovely work, Dougie.

A great shot, Dougie, the winter sun catching the f/g grasses so nicely. It does look cold in that shot despite the sun......I don't know if 'winter' has arrived earlier than usual, but it seems that way to me.

I'm banned from drinking malt or any spirits sadly. Red wine in moderation whatever that is?

One of your best IMO - a cracker. Love the sense of movement and the sweep of colour.

Foreground to die for - makes me want to head up north again. Great detail and not instantly recognisable as Lochan na h'Achlaise, nice work,
Ian.
