My favourite capture from the best morning: Stob Dearg, Buachaille Etive Mor, from just below the upper cascades of the River Coupall.

As I post this shot it takes me back to what it felt like to be perched on river ice, in the exceptionally cold but totally still air, watching the sun creep doen the mountain and across the moor, until its warm (coloured!) light flooded me and the foreground.

The landscape felt friendly, not hostile - indeed the snow-covered rocks looked for all the world like iced buns!
