Up at 4:00 at the shores of Loch Garten by 4:30 i must be mad, still at least the midges aren't awake yet unlike yesterday when i was eaten alive at the same loch. I'm set up and waiting for the light and it's freezing. Then the sun begins to break, i have taken several exposures by the time i go to this image and at one point the mist was so thick it was beginning to obscure my view of the rock in the foreground and i'm beginning to panic. I watched in anticipation hoping it will clear enough to allow me to capture a decent exposure. Then it started to swirl and move around as if to purposefully allow me to take a few more exposures. The all the elements congealed and i managed to capture this exposure. The sunlight was just right to catch the mountains in the background and to give them a sense of definition and to accentuate the ruggedness of the topography also to lift the colours of the moss. and the texture of the foreground rock.
