Loch A Chroisg, Achnasheen, Scotland

This image was taken at the lowest temperature I have ever experienced in Scotland. It was minus 29 Degrees Celcius according to a mercury thermometer I kept in my car and is actually lower than the lowest recorded temperature in the UK. I can't vouch for the accuracy of my thermometer but I can tell you that the tips of my fingers lost all sense of feeling for three months. The grasses were weighed down under the accumulated mass of hoar frost and that misty backdrop continued to add volume and layers to the crust of ice.
