A favorite spot for enjoying the hill, not far from the Pitcaple quarry. The moss and lichens on this rock in the middle of the field caught my eye.
Sun rise appears briefly over the shoulder of Mither Tap, the ground under foot crunchy with frost.
Ignoring the weather forecast for fog and cloud I headed up the hill and was treated to this breathtaking scene as the sun rose above the inversion, with Mither Tap silhoutted.
Every year there is one morning when you wake up to find Bennachie has her first dusting of snow.
It really is an amazing way to start the day. The summit of Bennachie at sunrise.
