Loch Tulla, Argyll, Scotland

Out of the many times I had visited this location, I have never experienced such a tranquil scene as was presented before me on this freezing Winter's day. The early morning sun was just peeking over the surrounding snow covered mountains, illuminating the distant tops as the mist cleared over the calm water. Not a breath of wind disturbed the water, creating a perfect reflection. The water level in the loch had risen slightly to transform the wooded promontory into an island. High contrast levels, which I normally strive to avoid,  helped subdue the detail in the trees, which enhanced the 3D effect I was seeking. Photo © copyright by Graham Chalmers.
