Location: Rannoch Moor, Glencoe, Scotland.

Spears pf bright green moorland grass sticking out of a puddle in a carpark sited between the two back wheels of parked cars. The weight of the cars is responsible for the contoured fracture lines and the blue is from a sky devoid of clouds on a perfect winter morning. There were at least one or two folk shaking their heads in disbelief at the sight of a photographer lying prostrate on the ground beside an otherwise mucky puddle and this was doubtless exaggerated by the magnificent wide mountain landscape that greeted the eyes of all other interested parties had the lunatic in the grass, (me!), raised his head to look. Still I had the last laugh this has been used on the cover of both books and magazines as an example of wilderness beauty.
