Dawn over Loch Voil, (outside Balquidder, Scotland)

This is the 6th in a series of 8 images taken that morning (note 5 preceding starting with ‘first light’) taken with my brandnew and very first point and shoot digi camera (a fujifinepix a500)

‘dawn mist’

and is followed by ‘dawn mist rising’ taken just after this one with the frost still on the ground…

Then some hours later this lucky shot from a layby

‘mirror calm scottish loch’

! !:

5 earlier images are ;

‘first light’:

‘early mist’:

‘blanket mist’:

‘mist tree’:

and ‘tree light’:
