Several nights of freezing temperatures had encased the world in ice. Standing with my back to a ridge line, unable to see the horizon, I hoped there would be a gap in the clouds to let the warm rays of sunrise pierce the scene. It did not happen, but I was pleased with the cool tones which increased the sense of extreme coldness. The mountains from left to right are Cul Beag, Stac Pollaidh and Cul Mor.
