Winter Moorland Colours

By teocali
This image is not so much about the Red Grouse(Lagopus lagopus) but more about its moorland habitat. This is a near full frame capture with just a little cropped away from the RHS and base and the bird is at a distance of 31.6m. I just loved the colours and abstract qualities and textures of the winter moorland vegetation. The image was taken at Lochindorb, near Grant Town on Spey, Cairngorms National Park in the Scottish Highlands.

Many thanks for your support of yesterdays upload - always highly appreciated Smile

The tendency is to want to crop in on the bird but this works so much better for the reason you have stated, another wonderful image. - gary
