Cairngorm Erratic   Cairngorm, Highlands, Scotland

At just about the highest point on the Cairngorm road is a wonderful overlook to the foot of the glen that sees a river snaking its way between two hills down towards Loch Morlich.  As a rule I usually avoid heavy foreground boulders but in this case it provided a base for the river and I carefully positioned it so that the meandering stream has the appearance of smoke curling away from its summit.  The heavy snow and limited colour greatly simplifies a scene that might otherwise become too confusing.
