I have seen this islotaed tree from the road for a long time and thought it would possibly make a good shot with the South Cluanie ridge in the background, if the weather was right. I took this shot this morning after a very early return trip to Inverness to get my car from the garage. The snow on the hills, not a complete covering, always adds texture and detail to the landscape and the tree growing out of the rock adds a lovely focal point in the foreground. The brooding sky behind the hills provided enough interest and colour to make the whole scene rather special.
