It's an extremely rare occurrence for snow to lie on the islands of Northton Salt Marsh on the Isle of Harris. To time it at sunrise and low tide was a coming together of rare factors to create a very special scene. Only 20 minutes later, the ice and snow had started to disappear and the islands were submerged a few hours later. 'The Beast From the East', a cold weather storm from Siberia was to be thanked for this!
I loved the combination of the ice and flowing water, the blue tones created by the combination of the stormy skies and dawn light contrasting with the brilliance of the snow. If you look closely, there is also a snowfall over the summit of Ceapabhal, the hill in the backdrop.
