Frosty Ice Cream...

By Scottishlandscapes  
...a trip to the Moor yesterday eventually. I found that the roads were much better out of town, the gritters had done their work and you could see the black stuff all the way North. -11.5 degrees in Crianlarich en route.

Superb image you can feel the coldness.
The hot soup was wonderfull Marie, a duvet in the back of the car on your own is no fun.

A beautiful image. My goodness but it looks cold and I think you have conveyed that well by including the frosted vegetation in the foreground.

Super snow scene
I'd love to have been first but there were other footprints,two sets I think and some deer.
No dafties yet walking out on the ice but the weekend will bring them no doubt.

superb wintry picture - I am looking thro all my folders for a landscape image I can submit for a competition locally and all or most of my shots are birds, hubs keeps telling me he sees any I choose as trees or buildings and I am getting desperate.

There's a lovely balance between smooth drifting snow and the textures in the foreground. Love those blue shadows.

I salute your devotion to the Cause, Dougie as well as this delightful masterpiece. I can't get my car out of the garage, let alone as far as the main road.....

Well done to get up there, roads in West sound reasonable, wouldn't attempt it from the East at moment.

Chris it turns out that the battery needed a complete discharge and charge it's fine now. Thanks for the thought.

At least you got blue skies.It is diabolical here and not able to travel anywhere except on foot.
If eve a picture portrayed winter this is the one Dougie. A fantastic capture with the snow looking cold and white.

A beautiful capture Dougie did wonder when you were going to out and about up there lol..
The Police have been hammering on about not going out, seems they did a great job, when I was up there only trucks were passing with only the occasional car.

Superb winter shot, the side lighting enhancing the f.g detail and textures beautifully, Dougie. I think you are very brave venturing up there...glad the roads were easily negotiable.

Thanks for showing us what Rannoch moor has been like recently Dougie. I'm glad you found the journey fairly trouble free.
