...just my favourite place in Scotland. Lochan na h'Achlaise on Rannoch Moor. The frost was quite hard when I arrived, bitterly cold. Met up with friend & tremendous photographer Paul Holloway, a great morning.

***I think I got the lid back on tight Moira.***

A beautiful composition, Dougie, and all the more effective for the colour juxtaposition of the complimentary warm oranges against those cool blues!
Smashing stuff!!

It was a great morning which you've more than done justice with this fine image, Dougie. Good to meet you at last, I reckon we must have passed each other on the A82 many a time.

What a beautifully captured image Dougie. Love the frost and the warm light. It was the coldest this morning of my two weeks in Scotland.. was minus 4 at 9am so heaven knows what it was earlier!
Sorry we missed you on Saturday... maybe next time.
