The Great Sheperd of Etive

Another from earlier in the year in the bitterly cold West Highlands of Scotland.


Out for sunrise in Glen Etive and on the hunt for iced up pools of water, whilst the first didn't really happen to any effect, the second one certainly did and it was a case of just trying to get a decent one into a composition with the great snow capped mountain in the rear in the shot also.


A little splash of colour in the sky at dawn was about as much as the sky played ball this morning but the icy pool really sets off the mountain to the rear and the cloudy sky blocking the light I also feel adds quite a bit to the moody / coldness of the scene, the pool has already started to melt with the sun coming up and ten minutes later it would be gone almost completely.
