Emergence Loch Achilt

By hwatt  
Loch Achilt, Contin, Scotland

This was a stunning morning, very still, and chilly but the sun had risen and it immediately started to boil off the surface of the loch and within a minute or two the birch island complete with its golden gown became invisible. We duly hung around and the mist continued to lift eventually revealing the vague outline of the island and its golden birch with the backdrop of Scots pine just barely visible. This was my defining moment. Imagine my surprise when a second or two later the peace and tranquility was shattered by a person swimming by. It was 6.30am.

Pentax 67II, 300mm lens, f5.6, 1/30 Second, Fuji Velvia 50.

A beautiful loch that I know well but I have yet to see someone swimming in it. I almost didn't click on the thumbnail because it looked so vague. Now I am so glad that I did. You caught this at just the right moment. A magical scene.
