Loch Maree, Wester Ross, Scotland.

Awarded a 'commended' status by the judges in the '2013 Landscape Photographer Of The Year' competition.

I remember the early morning drive in the dark down to the loch from Gairloch, where my wife and I were staying, and wondering what the dawn light would be like. The previous afternoon I had scouted the area and I knew where I wanted to be that morning. Could I find the little off road parking spot in the dark? It all looked so different. Finally there it was and I parked up and walked down towards the tree, set up, had coffee and waited for the sunlight to reach the tree and listened to stags bellowing from across the loch.
