Loch Pityoulish in Winter

The Story Behind the Image - Loch Pityoulish in Winter

One of the most memorable photography trips in my life was a week I spent near Nethy Bridge, in the Cairngorms National Park, in the last week of October.

One memorable morning I awoke to find several inches of snow on the ground. I jumped into my car and drove - carefully over the frozen roads - to Loch Pityoulish, near Aviemore.

The sun was just breaking the horizon, so the shaded area near the loch shore was still in shadow, creating a gorgeous blue light. I photographed along the loch shore for several hours as the sun came up, but this photo was my favourite.

The other highlight - or perhaps it was a lowlight - was that as I photographed I managed to lose my car keys in the snow. It took quite some time and a fair bit of panic to find them again.
