Loch Droma is a manmade reservoir in the Wester Ross region of the Scottish highlands. The reasons that urged me to capture and compose this image the way I di are:
• The beautiful shapes of the ice that was enclosing the submerged grasses.
• The beautiful reflections of the distant land on the non-frozen surface of the loch.
• The little gap in the clouds reflected on the loch's surface creating a lovely form.
I used the Canon 17mm Tilt / shift lens to achieve depth and ensure front to back sharpness at the fairly wide aperture of f/8.
