March snow

As often happens March has it's share of snow. As it melted these colourful crocus flowers stood out against the snowy, grassy background.

Misty Loch

Fishing boat moored on Loch Creran.
It was a showery day with low misty cloud but dry when I shot this. Its made from layering 2 images of 3exposures HDR. The camera was doing too good a job of clearing the mist in a normal single shot. The HDR method enabled me to reproduce the scene much as I saw it.
