I had been hoping for some mist on the Loch for some months and had trodden the path each morning to see if weather conditions had conspired to provide the milky waters I wanted to witness and photograph.  This week I was rewarded with very dense mist.

When I arrived the air was clear and the Loch bright – unfortunately that meant I received a mauling at the hands of the Skye midges!  Just as I was about to leave the weather changed, the wind picked up, the midges disappeared and the temperature dropped.  It was only when I moved my eye from the viewfinder and stretched my legs, after crouching down behind my tripod, that I realised the Loch was enveloped in mist.  It was mysterious, ethereal and magical and there was a tiny slither of light across the middle of the Loch.

Revisiting the images and the memories of the day has been fun.  I need to return to the Loch soon and hope for mist again.  My Image of the Week is one that did not make my final portfolio and is in colour:
