Frosty Lochan...

By Scottishlandscapes  
...just my favourite place in Scotland. Lochan na h'Achlaise on Rannoch Moor. The frost was quite hard when I arrived, bitterly cold. Met up with friend & tremendous photographer Paul Holloway, a great morning.

***I think I got the lid back on tight Moira.***

Ye gods, this is cold. Stunningly beautiful but please hang onto it for a few weeks yet.

A beautiful composition, Dougie, and all the more effective for the colour juxtaposition of the complimentary warm oranges against those cool blues!
Smashing stuff!!

It was a great morning which you've more than done justice with this fine image, Dougie. Good to meet you at last, I reckon we must have passed each other on the A82 many a time.

A superb shot. The blue/orange colour contrast works a treat and there's interest throughout the image. A quality photo.

Love this, the frosty cold blue tones and the lovely golden glow on the mountains, and a great frosty foregound, not too mention the clouds... Its got everything. Cracking image...
Thanks Mark, very kind, it was cold for sure I'm still cold at home.

Fabulous vertical triptych cold - warm - cold. Little bobbles of cloud to match the curly tops of the grasses. Tip-top.

Fantastic photo!
I love the light on the distant mountains.

Dougie, was there back in February and we couldn't even see the island let alone the tree for fog and rain. A first class image.

What a beautifully captured image Dougie. Love the frost and the warm light. It was the coldest this morning of my two weeks in Scotland.. was minus 4 at 9am so heaven knows what it was earlier!
Sorry we missed you on Saturday... maybe next time.

Wow, this looks cold indeed - but there was the sun coming up and lighting the hills. Wonderful contrast in light - the icy darkness in the fg and the orange sun on the hills. Superb!

So many people are afraid to keep their images blue, I'm a great fan of blue skies, no matter what time of day, this is wonderful Dougie.
