Rannoch Moor Sunrise and Moonset

On Location

Sunrise and Moonset Over Rannoch Moor

If I have a preference, it is for sunrise rather than sunset; I love watching the sun rise on a cold frosty morning and bathe the landscape in its warm yet delicate colours. I also enjoy the stillness and silence of the pre-dawn; a time when one can be at peace and feel at one with nature.

This image of the peaks of the Blackmount across Rannoch Moor almost took itself; the main subject is obvious but more care was necessary when chosing the extent and content of the fore and middle ground. In its frozen condition the loch provided more interest and the patterns in the ice provided the perfect vehicle to add depth to the image and draw the viewer's eye through it.
