Loch A Chroisg, Achnasheen, Scotland

Extreme low temperatures from freezing mist clearing over Loch A Chroisg near Achnasheen began to slowly dissipate leaving a thick coating of hoar frost on every solid surface including ths old wire post fence jutting out into the loch. The surface was just barely above freezing point and the water as still and dark as molasses producing superlative reflections that mirrored the frozen details but more than all this i loved the cool blue colour palette with the merest hints of colour in the frozen red sand at the edges of the loch.
