Fractured Pityoulish   Loch Pityoulish, Cairngorms, Scotland.

A delightful loch with a mountainous backdrop.  In winter it occasionally freezes over and then thaws out in the warmth of the sun when that happens the water surface becomes wind ruffled and the ice sheet fractures stacking a mosaic of plates against the foreshore.  I loved the foreground pattern of broken ice, but was even more attracted by the colour palette of peat brown and stormy blue in the sky.
