Frosted Gold

By hwatt  
Lettoch, Spey Valley, Scotland

Scotland is in the ferocious grip of winter and for a change it has come unusually early so it's a bout time I posted something that relates more directly to the season. Hopefully the honey coloured light doesn't nake you shiver too much.

A golden cloak of backlit silver birch trees thickly coated with hoar frost diffuses the setting sun turning them to drizzled gold.
