A frozen Loch at the end of May !!! My pal was gonna fish it as well . This was just above the second bothy we stayed in.
the highest Loch in the land and it is said to be iced or frozen 7 months of the year a fine capture here Rod that wee touch of blue just sets it all off bet ye were glad to get to the bothy
A lovely place Rod !! I would not like to sleep there - it looks freezing there
Wow Rod what an amazing View, bet you were happy to get warm, this does look cold, love the clouds...John
Cleverly deceptive, but Ferguson's political leanings tell us to look to the left half of the image. Follow the lead in, a tortuous, hard & cold meander through life, towards the breasts, over the abdomen, & on towards the place of his conception. This is clearly more than just a happy snap, this is the story of a man's search for the warmth of his past.
Great spot to be in, the snow to the left makes a great lead in and the fact that some has melted means the area of the loch is well defined. I wonder if the image needs brightening a bit; the sky is very dark and the snow a bit grey overally. Brightening with curves or levels would likely burn out the sunlit patches of snow but as there is little detail in them anyway it shouldn't matter but it will give the image more impact overall, I might crop the uppermost sky too and therefore focus attention more on the ground and that splendid dappled light. The other option would be to go mono and push the contrast which could give a very punchy image. Huge kudos to you for overnighting and shooting in these 'wintery' spring conditions.
Rod a love this fotae, gled tae see yae picked a shutter spped fast enough to stop blurr fae shiverin

And there was me thinking that if your pal wanted ready-frozen fish he might as well buy Bird's Eye...
Erik's b&w looks good....but no better than your original. ...And Almiles needs to calibrate his monitor. Either that or I need to calibrate mine. Anyway, looks fine to me, with the whites tonally on the warm side of neutral, turning more creamy in the foreground.
Anyway, I think this is one of your best. Muckle braw, in fact.
Looking forward to what else you're going to show from that trip. Good stuff.
P.S. I see Si's been at the birthday bottle
Cheers Alan , i have mucked about with a B/W version and a brightened colour version . Yeah they are creamy i think thats just the underlying ground giving that hue as the snow melts. Well thats my story lol
I like the place covered with snow and the thawing ice on the loch and the clouds. I also like the B&W version created, even if it doesn't perhaps reflect the real colour of the snow.
I am exhausted from reading all the comments above, but I find the image appealing, great capture
Another excellent landscape capture, Rod. Good exposure control.
All the comments are great Colleen , iam learning all the time Its all good stuff

Great scene, exactly why I loved Scotland so much during 20 years of as a southern intruder!
A stunning landscape Roddy - once again attracted to the image for the lovely tones.
