By Melanie_M  
From last weekend on the way to Skye. It was so cold that frost formed on my camera strap as I watched. I had the spot to myself before hearing voices behind me. It was one of those voices who told me what temp his car was reading. Brhhhh - - -

Stunning image - great comp and tones. It has already all been said I just wonder if there is another shot here with telephoto of the tree and the mountian behind?

This is exceptional, Melanie. A gorgeously atmospheric image. The mist allows the brittle tree to stand out so well and adds great stature to the distant mountains.

Its a cracker!
Sensationally sublime if that's possible, tremendous work on the frozen moor. The colour just hitting the Black Mount but not the tree, worth it's weight in gold a shot like this. I'll bet your wee heart went bump when you saw this vision in front of you.

All the very best Melny, look forward to seeing the rest of your trip to the Misty Isle.

Worth the frozen feet and diesel - you forgot to tell that bit!
As all above say - a sublime shot that is remarkable for its originality as well as it's beauty. I'm hoping you'll also have some close shots of those frosted trees - we sailed past some in the car and I nearly yanked the hand brake on but had to get to station.
Glad you didn't yank the hand brake Claire, I had enough laundry in the boot.
Stunningly beautiful! In particular the soft pastel colours are superb. I am so jealous. An excellent capture.

Wonderful image Mel. That looks sooooo cold. Glad your camera mechanics were still working. Beautiful capture. Like the outline and shape of the mid distance trees against the mountains. Paul

Stunning shot Mel. I love that pink light on the distant mountains.
By looking at this Image, I can almost feel how cold it is. Very good. Get's my vote.
