Cold bright Scottish highland morning

By hrsimages
Revisiting some images taken during an early season sailing trip two years ago I came across this shot taken in upper Loch Etive, one of my favourite mountain lochs. There's nothing quite like the feeling of being out early among bright sunshine and snow covered mountains with all the promise of a good day ahead of you. The mountain summit in this shot is Beinn Cruachan and the bay where I rowed ashore to take this shot is is Camus an-t Seilisdeire. Not far from here there is a small bothy, useful for those who trek in along the path on the NW shore of the loch. There are no proper roads along the upper shores of Loch Etive and it has a wild and remote feel to it.
