Winter Light.

Winter can be variable in the Highlands. January saw a brief cold snap with fantastic conditions for skiing nearby at Glencoe Mountain. Unfortunately that was followed by a warmer spell and rain that stripped back a lot of the white stuff.

Besides the cold, Winter brings fabulous light with the Sun never rising that far above the horizon until the day’s start to stretch out at the end of January. A photographer’s “Golden Hour” actually lasts most of the day. Those crisp cold days bring intense colours with deep shadows to the landscape and we’re reminded of the special environment that we’re lucky to live in…

The road home…

Andy was out walking the dogs this morning above the village and, knowing that the glen would look stunning with the recent snowfall, he decided to make a little diversion…. 😀
