River Orchy Gold   Glen Orchy, Highlands, Scotland

It had been a typical grey and thoroughly traditional winter day in and around Glencoe and we had sort refuge from the gusting drizzle in the relative shelter of Glen Orchy next to the river that flows through it.  The chances of any light materialising seemed to approach a big fat zero, but of course this is Scotland and this country likes to surprise and it did so with the most exquisite burst of golden sunlight which squeezed itself beneath a belt of mist and illuminated the water droplets hanging off every branch.  I teased out the most reflected light I could from water and wet rock and was delighted with this contrasty image.
