This image was taken from the flight deck of Inverness Coastguard helicopter during training over the snow-dusted Scottish Highlands at the weekend.
The photograph has been shared online by the Bristow Group-operated Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) helicopter crew.
The MCA said it was essential the search and rescue crews trained in all weathers.
On Sunday, the Inverness-based crew were involved in two rescues operations in and around Glen Coe.
