Frosted Oasis   Dava Moor, Moray, Scotland

A bitter winter morning on Dava moor just at the edge of a small loch which had frozen over.  As the warming rays of sunlight hit the grasses then the ice that covered them so thickly began to melt and even the ice plate groaned with the strain of expansion.  However in the lee of a heather embankment the sun was prevented from touching the nearside reed bed and it was coated with bristling hoar frost.
