By the Light of the Silvery Moon

We grabbed yesterday by the horns as the forecast said it was going to be a good day in the mountains. To maximise on daylight, we set off at 6am from home, were walking by 6.45am, and reached this remote lodge at the foot of Loch Callater by 7.45am. The moon was so bright that our head torches were not required. It was a beautiful day up there ... even though the visibility came and went. We had the opportunity to practise our navigation skills, which does make me nervous. I feel the panic rising when I can't see where I'm going and I have to trust the compass 100%. The surge of relief when the cloud lifts is palpable! Practise makes perfect though. And yesterday was a good day. I never want to be out there on a bad day in winter!
Beautiful ❤️ well done on your adventuring!

This is so beautiful

A delightful capture and enlightening narrative - it reminded me of: The Lunar Society, prominent Midlanders, who met regularly between 1765 and 1813 in Birmingham (UK). They met during the full moon, as the extra light made the journey home safer, in the time of no street lighting.

So beautiful with that deep blue sky, moon & snow....magical....well done on the navigation....you have to have trust in the compass I guess!
December 4th, 2020  
I perfectly understand your anxiety. Great shot in the moon light.

Great adventure................sounds like my husband and I when canoeing and trying to get on the lake before the sun comes up in the summer..............super early! Lol

What a wonderful wintery capture, I agree about the compass
and weather. Got lost one using a compass in a deep thick woods
because of all the windfalls, Oh well
December 5th, 2020  
Love this
December 5th, 2020  
What an exciting day you had before the sun even came up!

Now what did you do at this lodge for the rest of the day! I would like to know you actually stayed here! fav

You and Hubby are the most adventurous folks - very impressive, your level of activity and exercise. Glorious moon lighting your way and this scene.

Beautiful shot. a great example of what can be achieved using the moonlight.

Most of the time people post blue hour shots from the evening hours, but this is a beautiful example of the morning slot. Absolutely gorgeous!

@miss_molly The extra light certainly made our journey safer! :-)

@maggiemae We stayed for about 5 minutes on the way up, and had our afternoon tea there on the way back - in the last of the sunshine.

This has atmosphere in spades... do take care on the hills though!
