The last few days have brought fantastic clear sunny frosty mornings and I have had the chance to get out for a few shots. Yesterday on the estate and today on my way through to Inverness. The shot above was taken today just as the sun was rising above the south Cluanie hills, highlighting the snow-covered tops but still keepig the northen slopes in shadow. The sky was a brilliant blue, although there was a thin hazy cloud to the west, which interestingly showed up more in the photos than it did to the naked eye. I also took a wider shot of the whole ridge, looking west towards Glen Shiel (below). The other shots were taken yesterday on the estate here at Balmacara from the hilside above Drumbuie. The first looks over the township of Drumbuie towards the crofts at Duirinish and with the Bealach na Ba in the background. The other is looking towards the Cuillins on Skye with Loch Erbusaig showing in the medium foreground to the left.
