Loch An Eilein, Cairngorm, Scotland

This place at the end of Loch An Eilein in Cairngorm is oft photographed but this is definitely some of the best light and most interesting conditions I have had the good fortune to photograph it in. I was leading a group of photographers and had relinquished my tripod when this beautiful golden shaft of light illuminated a pool of mist that hovered around the island castle. The tripod briefly migrated my way and I got this shot by the outflow of the loch the blue snow pillows adorning the banks deftly providing a little foreground interest where the oily black water drained out of the loch.
