    An early start yesterday morning as the conditions were looking good for a winter sunrise.
    I took these as I waited for the sunrise and boy, I wasn't disappointed!!
    Still to develop the sunrise images so in the meantime, here are some Pre-Dawn images
    Raining today so sorting through yesterday's images, listening to Beth Hart & Joe Bonamassa's new album in the background, contemplating pouring a wee cheeky malt while Bev is hitting the shops ;)
    Life doesn't get much better than this :D

    Wonderful group. How much blue/temp did you change? Whatever you did or if it is nature it is stunning!

    More or less as is.
    No adjustments to white balance at all.

    I added a blue filter to a previous post from Windermere to give it a cool look in the snow

    BTW, the single malt(s) were delicious!!
    Started the day off with Glenmorangie and ended the day with Talisker ;)
