I've been to this location twice: this winter and the previous year for some winter mountaineering. This was from Feb 2012 and we had great weather conditions, sunny and calm with snow on the ground for our purposed (with 1 bad day). I never did get the perfect shot of the 5 sisters (which is the name of these hills you see) but this is one of my best from the trip. I got up earlier than everyone else just to get it, though this view is from the grounds of the hostel so no great effort was needed to capture it. It would be interesting to know what kind of shot this would be had I waded into the water to get rid of some foreground clutter in the composition.

Lovely photo, love the colours, though I think such colours always make Scotland look a great deal warmer than she actually is. :D

I think the location is perfect. The clutter in the foreground increases the sense of distance of the mountains. Great photo!

It is such a wonderful place, I hope you enjoyed it :)  I did not see the otters as we were always away from the hostel during the daylight up in the mountains you see :)  I'd love to see some though

Thank you for getting up so early, as it means the rest of us get to see this beautiful photograph. I think you took it from just the right spot as the refection of the hills in the water looks really good!
