A man and woman were spotted skiing naked up a 4,000ft mountain in -2C weather in the Scottish Highlands.
The pair were caught on camera on Cairn Gorm, a peak in the Grampian Mountains, as they clutched skis atop the snow-capped peak on December 18.
George Robertson, 64, was just hoping to snap wild hares while he was scouring the mountains with four other nature photographers when he captured more than he'd bargained for.
The retired father-of-three verified his find through a pair of bird watching binoculars. Robertson believed that the couple could see them but seemed unbothered about being observed.
He added that it was unusually warm that day, melting the snow and attracting lots of walkers, Triangle News reports.
He said: "There was a group of five of us out taking wildlife photographs and we stumbled across these two naked skiers about 100 meters from the summit.
"It was quite a busy day because the weather was warm. I have walked in the Scottish mountains for close to 50 years and I haven't come across that before.

"It was just disbelief at first because I was looking through the camera, scouring the horizon and there was a couple standing there with no clothes on. So it was just shock and disbelief, and then we carried on looking for wildlife.
"They could obviously see other people were on the mountain because we were clearly in their line of sight but they just carried on doing what they were doing, and then dressed and skied off.
"I wasn't offended by it but I just thought it was a bit odd-looking like that hundreds of metres up a mountain with snow on the ground.

"I thought the images were quite amusing at the time: just people running about in the snow with just bobble hats on and a pair of skis in their hands."
According to Mail Online, being naked in public in England and Wales is not an offence. However, it becomes a crime if a complainant can prove the nudist's intention was to offend and shock.
It is a common-law offence in Scotland. The test is whether a member of the public has been alarmed or disturbed by the public nakedness.
