I look for ice that might have formed on the water’s surface, and as I expect, it is on the fringes of the loch. I clamber tentatively down to the edge of the water. The ground is sodden and pitted by the sheep so it is heavy going. I find a dry patch for me and my camera bag and hope my boots will not sink as I focus on my photography.
The sun rises and I feel the warmth on my back. It is more comfortable to work now and as the ice melts I decide to use intentional camera movement again which had been very successful yesterday. I enjoy making these images and hope this different part of the loch provides me with different perspectives on the theme.
I am really enjoying my photography and working in warmer weather without the incessant wind and rain of the winter months. The colours of spring are clearly visible in these images as the loch and the reeds emerge from the season of hibernation. . .
