Misty Morning, Loch Rannoch 1

Misty Morning, Loch Rannoch 1
It was too good an opportunity to miss: with covid restrictions suggested keeping within Perthshire, but weather forecast suggesting oodles of thick fog around the time of sunrise around Rannoch, I just had to get up and go.
For once, the weather didn't disappoint. The fog was indeed thick, the sunlight came with a first flush of red to the east and pink to the west, then faded obscured by mist, returning golden around sunrise itself.
The low cloud was so thick and consistent I never even saw the favoured mountain, Schiehallion, all morning; but the views across the loch to the trees on the opposite shore were awesomely atmospheric.

I'm particularly impressed at how still the trees stayed despite it being 25*4 = 100s exposure (thanks to pixel-shift).
