Shattered

Loch A Chroisg, Achnasheen, Scotland

This old tree was alleged to have been struck by lightning but personally I suspect that this was caused by repeated and acute freeze thaw cycles because intense cold is what Loch a Chroisg on the outskirts of Torridon is renowned for. I have shot this tree numerous times but this was the coldest morning I have ever experienced with temperatures dropping to -29 degrees Celcius. The tree is a little worse for wear these days.

Masterful light to gain such detail and the white frost backed by the subtle blue of the sky. Well done. Few would venture out.

I think most of us would be worse for wear with that temperature and UK humidity
