First Snow Shinness   Lairg, Sutherland, Scotland

On the outskirts of Lairg as the road climbs towards the hills the landscape changes from tree lined roads to open vistas over moorland.  Shinness has some isolated rural communities with views to the mountains beyond and it became quickly apparent that the higher I went the more snow I would see.  At Shinness there was a light dusting taking the edge off the colour of the golden grasses but offering nice opposing hues with the sky reflected on the meandering river flowing through it.
