Another image from our trip over to Assynt in Sutherland in the snow yesterday.

I was so tempted to purposely misspell the name of this ruin on the shores of Loch Assynt in the title. Colder House would've been a far more appropriate name for it yesterday as the temperature was -2 degrees when we were there, but I decided that was far too corny for me Smile

Many thanks for your votes and comments on my last upload.

Wonderful Sue! Looks so different from the last time I was there. I love that sky and the colour of the loch. Great composition with that tuft of grass in the foreground. It was well worth the -2C - well for me, anyway!! Smile I do hope you have some more....
PS - we're hoping to be up there again at the beginning of February...

Wow! I actually recognised this place from my one and only visit there Sue, and I took a picture from the other side of the Building, you might remember, which I uploaded some time agoSmile
This is great though, it just shouts out WINTER in the Highlands. Smashing shot.

Great snowscape, lovely sky detail and a very good balance to the composition.

Brrr! Looks so very cold and empty but the light on the loch is beautiful and I love the composition.

Excellent choice of pov, Sue, giving depth and thereby scale to the whole image, which is made to appear even larger by that large looming sky.

We had our first snow last night, a generous 20cm (8" in old money). The cats were not amused.

Very appropriate name right enough. I'm glad you didn't change it; it works well enough for someone from central Scotland. An image made by the placement of the reeds, leading through the house and out to the far end of the loch.

A very bleak winter scene, I like the feeling of remoteness and wide open space
