I took this shot from the narrow bridge at Torgyle on the Invermoriston road on my way back from Inverness this afternoon. The river on this side (west) of the bridge is often flat calm and like a mirror whilst being rippled on the other side. I have often thought that there might be scope for a good photo looking west if the light was right and today offered a decent opportunity to try. The sun had just sunk behind the far hills (where you can see a couple of the new wind turbines) and mist was hanging in the glen. This stretch of road is notorious for temperature inversions and is regulalry very frosty in winter, so not surprisingly the birch trees were frosted pale purple. The sky was not very interesting so I concentrated on zooming in a little as opposed to going for the wider angle and I think it has worked reasonably well. No doubt this could be improved upon but worth a try and I'll keep my eyes open for another better opportunity.
