Black Mount Sunrise

Lochan na h Achlaise, Black Mount Mountain Range, Rannoch Moor near Glencoe, Scotland


For this composition I wanted to incorporate the foreground rocks and with the overnight frost some of the ice formations created.  There was absolutely no wind, which created a beautiful mirror reflection.  The light was stunning as it hit Black Mount and there was sufficient cloud about to give an interesting sky.  I could not have asked for better conditions, I did not want the morning to end.
