Misty Morning, Loch Rannoch 3

Misty Morning, Loch Rannoch 3
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.
In this case, so atmospheric as to make a completely minimalist intimate landscape, one protruding rock and some sunk dead tree trunk fragments, nothing but a fine horizon line and smooth hazy gradients.
