Mountain Mirror   Rannoch Moor, Glencoe, Scotland

I am a huge advocate of making the most of the circumstances available at the time of shooting.  On this occasion there was a phenomenally good sky so unsurprisingly I wanted to make the best use of it that I could.  The problem was the amount of ice covering the loch.  I managed to find a ten foot section of unfrozen water which was just on the verge of freezing over and was consequently a near perfect mirror of the sky.  This became my immediate foreground and the sky conveniently doubled up whilst raking light illuminated the bracken clad hills beyond.
