Gloaming

Taken on December 5, 2016

You might be mistaken into believing that this image was taken in The Highlands given the loch, ice, frost, backdrop and gloaming light. But it was taken within 10-miles of my home in western Fife, a 20 minute journey by car and a 10 minute walk along a forest track to reach Loch Glow. This was 3-days after my previous visit and in that time the ice and frost have returned. The boats were icebound and I watched big trout swimming under the ice. Taken about 10 minutes after sunset as fog and mist were descending making for a very atmospheric scene. Filters: Formatt-Hitech Firecrest Polariser and Firecrest 1.2 ND + 0.6 GND.
