The sun is very low in the sky at present. It barely gets over the mountain tops (in most cases it doesn't.) The days are short. The sun rises at 9.00 and sets at 3.30. On our hill side in Letters we only see the sun for about an hour each day. It appears from the side of one mountain at the head of the loch travelling the short distance before disappearing into the side of the mountain on the other. This photo was taken yesterday morning at around 10.30 on the way into Inverness in a vague attempt to deal with the christmas shopping! It was cold and the sun cast l o n g shadows, The temperature was -6.5c. There is little if any snow though and the forecast for the weekend is more rain!
