It was a bright, crisp and clear day yesterday, and I took a trip out to Loch Kinord, by Dinnet, to check out the scenery.
As it happens it was a bit more than 'crisp' by the loch. It was almost completely frozen over, with ice thick enough to stand on in places! This put paid to my plans for the photographs I had in mind unfortunately, but I walked the loop round the loch, enjoyed the scenery and did take a few other shots.
There was very little movement in the air, with no clouds overhead, except over the mountains further away occasionally diffusing the sun as it set. I was there to catch 'golden hour' - the time just before and after sunset (Or sunrise) when the light can be at its best - though with the thick clouds on the mountains and their height there was only brief moments before the sun dipped fully. I suppose you can't get the weather you want all the time!
Have a good weekend!
