Loch Clair, Torridon, Scotland

Winter mornings don't often mature into something as special as this but a gap in the clouds allowed early morning sunlight to paint the snow clad peak of Liathach in the Torridons whilst a moody grey sky tinged with patches of blue reflected onto the fracured ice in Loch Clair. In a few places a prevailing wind had at some stage blown across the ice and as it thawed sheets of ice had stacked up and refrozen on its surface.
