14 Below   Loch Garten, Cairngorms, Scotland

Fourteen below zero was the temperature that remained throughout this very fine winter day even during periods of protracted sunshine.  The result was vastly improved access to areas on the edge of Loch Garten which would usually be too sodden to reach.  The frost remained on every leaf, twig and branch muting the palette of colour beneath.  I managed to frame an island of Scots pine neatly slotting it between lochside birch.  I found the texture, pattern and delicate palette very much to my taste.
