Clair Lilac   Loch Clair, Torridon, Scotland

Soft pinkening clouds line a sky of pre-dawn twilight as the sun rises slowly and casts a faint but very beautiful lilac glow over Loch Clair and snow capped Liathach beyond.  The relatively low contrast has permitted me to extract some shadow detail from the unlit Scots Pine whilst the striking presence of the hoar frost in the immediate foreground complements the line of frost stiffened yellow reeds just clear of the expanding ice.
