...taken the same day in December 2009 as yesterday's image. I was over the moon with the frost and light and didn't know whether to stay or move to a different place. This is as you will know my favourite loch in Scotland.

An iconic location that you have almost on your doorstep Dougie. Fabulous landscape with all that mood, a dilema I would love to have as I have never seen Loch Ba in snow !! Where do you park for this ? Ron.

This one has got it all - frosty reeds in the blue water, fluffy clouds, russet tones and snow on the peaks. Oh and fabulous blue shadows.

Like the light and the good details in the foreground that the frost has given the grasses. Certainly looks a cold morning, but worth being out.

New camera Dougie? Looks like you're making the most of it with this magnificant view of the Lochan, which is also one of my favourite places.

I looked and looked at all the beautiful colours and details, shadows and highlights and then I stopped at that little tree. Standing there like it owns the place. What a gorgeous view it has. Love this ..............Sandy

Oh it does own the place Sandy. Thanks very much for your kind comment and your UserAward, I like getting awards from other photographers so much. I'm glad you enjoyed the image, I was happy as a sandboy when I took it. Thanks again.:Grin

Well now, Dougie that really is a rather splendid photograph. Outstanding photography of Am Monadh Dubh across Lochan na h-Achlaise. The only reason I can clearly recall the spelling of the name is because as a Welsh speaker the Black Mount in Welsh would be Mynydd Du which doesn't seem that different even though it's a totally different branch of the Celtic languages. I continue to really enjoy viewing your excellent images.

*jealous now* Great shot Dougie, I have always wanted to be there with this type of scene, but everytime I have been up, its always been drab and grey here..ah well maybe one day!

Brilliant in very way!
