The first star coming out - the snow on Leacann Dubh and Creag Leacach glistening in cold light of winter's dusk.
I know it was Sirius, because by the time I'd finished shooting this (about a minute's exposure), Orion had risen to the right... Taken on my first excursion to hunt landscape out with the Olympus Pen-F. A long day's drive taking in lots of the north-east coast but coming down Glenshee during the blue hour after dusk, the light was magical - skies of the purest cobalt blue, snow pure silvery white.
