Loch Etive

Continuing with the black and white theme - a few images from one of those perfectly still, icy winter days, all too brief in their passing.
Resting on the rocks, frozen into place despite the salt water lapping gently along the shore.
Perfect neve clings to the steep slopes of Ben Starav, falling precipitously to the loch - the remants of a harsh winter lingering into spring.
The long ridge with its difficult step, of Ben Cruachan - a fine winter traverse.
