Kissed By A Rose

By hwatt  
Rannoch Moor, Glencoe, Scotland

A favourite spot of mine and probably one of the first I aim for given limited time.

The pink and rosy light of Earths Shadow setting at sunrise over the distant Blackmount is surely the most beguiling of views across the massive expanse of Rannoch moor and Loch N'Achlaise. On this particular morning it was windless and my exhaled breath curled away like smoke but of course there were no reflections for the temperature was substantially below minus ten Celcius.

Good to see this landscape from a slightly different viewpoint , just shows how a few metres can make a huge difference in compositional effect,
