When the conditions are right...
let me be the first to congratulate you on an outstanding shot! The colours and tones here really say only one thing - cold! The stones in the loch in the FG make a nice, bold contrast to the pale, subtle BG and i like the snow capped hill peaking through in the beyond. Great job on the cropping too, it works really well.
Only 4 weeks until i'm back up there...can't wait!

I am glad that all is OK and I welcome your new photo series. This place is really wonderful and your role is so important. Shot is done perfectly. Amazing POV, clear natural colours and transparency of the air. Amazing mirror reflections and wonderful horizontal cropping, Bravo. Superb job. My kind regards and best wishes.

Sorry to hear you had a hard time lately, but somehow i'm glad you'll be spending a bit more time with us this week :)
Another splendid "frosty" landscape from you and indeed the atmosphere here is different: so clear and lovely that the perspective is amazing!
The details throughout the entire frame are terrific and the contrast and colors everywhere are magnificent!
No point in mentioning the composition anymore when it comes to your shots - it's always a pleasure!
Cheers and TFS
Great to see you post another photo of a frost covered Scotland. It does give the landscape an entirely different look. Great work on the composition, where the shoreline leads the eye nicely into the scenery. I am sure that you weren't that happy with the condition of the sky.

This is also very beautiful. I can see how cold it was. Beautiful light and soft colours. Great reflections. Well done.

This is calm waters if I ever did see!
Beautiful refelction with the muted winter colours, and a landscape marked by the frost...
Scenery is well composed and with a fine feeling of depth!

I DO enjoy it, and not only the picture, but also your notes.
As soon as you sent me your critique I went through your pictures and felt that we have much in common. I can't spend a lot of time on your pictures now, but I will come back to them this evening.
I chose this picture because of its simplicity and the peaceful atmosphere it generates. Usually, one can experience atmospheres like this one only alone in the nature, for example early in the morning or beside touristical seasons or days.
I like the management of the lightning very much: full contrast and full color on the foreground and then both fade out as we go to the background (sorry for my English...). This lightning effect underlines the soft and peaceful atmosphere of that wonderful winter day.
Your picture generates and awakes emotions. That means that the principal aim of it is fully reached!
I'm looking forward to crawling along your other pictures soon!
