Wolf in Winter

By almiles  
Lochindorb Castle (The Wolf's Lair - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lochindorb ) this week on a very cold day! The loch is freezing over but there's still a curving strip of less thick ice that shows up as dark. I think it probably follows some of the route of the current of the burn that feeds and drains the loch.

Wow, what a place, somewhere else on the list of places to visit.

Like this a lot Al, the line of the darker ice leads you in and the old castle is very evocative. Looks like Winter has properly arrived up north then.

Cheers

Andy

That curving strip was laid on esp. for you, Alan, knowing you were coming and needing a strong lead in which it certainly provides.
A fine winter composition, again with the portrait format enhancing that effect so well.
And it just oozes cold...........bbrrrrrrrr!!!

It certainly looks like a formidable lair. This is a fantastic image, you have balanced the whites perfectly, and used a natural lead in with the ice. Excellent photography.

Thanks SO much for your UA Joline! Grin Very kind; I wasn't sure how this would be recieved as it's quite a subdued image.
Thanks too for all your comments Andy, Herman, Kel, Dave, Dave, ****, Ronnie, Richard, Stephen and Joline! It certainly made me more admiring of some of the wintery images you see on EPZ, trying to operated the camera with numb fingers and gloves while keeping the wind-blown snow from getting on the ND grad was a real challenge!

An excellent capture Al, i love the subdued light, and the varying contrast in the snow and ice. Terrific.

A lovely meandering lead in here - the grey tones speak of cold, and dismal weather; I can almost feel it in my bones!

The curve of the current under the ice has traced a wonderful meandering arc across the fg which works beautifully with your composition.
