Life In The Freezer

Uploaded: January 12, 2009


Loch A Chroisg, Achnasheen, Scotland.

For three days running the temperature around the Highlands of Scotland dipped to around minus sixteen degrees celcius. Loch A Chroisg is notorious for collecting mist which in the right conditions turns to freezing fog accelerating the deposit of frost on every branch twig and blade of grass. I can honestly say I have never seen such extraordinarily beautiful conditions the depth of frost was over two inches. It actually formed on my camera bag and camera while I watched. This tree shows some indication of the frost and the misty atmosphere where the background slope is gently lit by direct sunlight.
