NX3056 : Loch Wayoch - bog and dog

taken 10 years ago, 5 km from Craighlaw Mains, Dumfries And Galloway, Great Britain

Loch Wayoch - bog and dog
Loch Wayoch - bog and dog
This loch is surrounded by quaking bogs. The surface of the bog was sufficiently frozen to support the dog's weight but not mine, and whenever I stopped to take a photo I started to sink through the ice crust into the swamp. By the time I had taken half a dozen pictures I was soaked to the knees. Fearing that I would disappear without trace, perhaps to be dug up in a thousand years' time as a 'bog body', I beat a retreat to drier ground.
