The Black Mount ~ Rannoch Moor, Scotland

We had a pleasure to spend an extended weekend (Dec 10-13, 2009) on the landscape photography workshop organized by Ian Cameron in Glencoe, Scotland. Weather changed on the day we arrived and stayed truly amazing during all four days. As Ian said "we were treated to some of the best winter photographic conditions I think I have ever had the good fortune to witness." There were six of us and we had lots of fun exploring and photographing Glencoe from early morning to an evening twilight every day. It just couldn't get any better ;)


This photo was taken on the second day as we were photographing near the Lochan na Stainge in the Rannoch Moor. I decided to explore the area more and found this nice frozen little pond. Together with the frosted grass it nicely complemented with the morning light on the snow capped peaks of The Black Mount.


You can find more information about Ranoch Moor on Wikipedia: "Rannoch Moor is a large expanse of around 50 square miles (130 km²) of boggy moorland to the west of Loch Rannoch, in Perth and Kinross and Lochaber, Highland, partly northern Argyll and Bute, Scotland. Rannoch Moor is designated a National Heritage site. It is notable for its wildlife, particularly famous for the sole British location for the Rannoch-rush, named after the moor."


Thanks for looking!
