Another from last Novembers Rowardennan meet. Looking across Lochan na h Achlaise at an oncoming squall. Taken about an hour after my last series of shots.

Hope you like, if not, let me know why Wink

Cheers Lynn and Rob.

Ross, your comment bothers me a little as I've not done a great deal - especially not to the bottom left. I can't quite understand what you mean, but the process is as follows ... processed in C1LE, then a couple of small adjustment curves in PS [1 sky + 1 below horizon], retouch some minor lens flare and dust spots. Resize, frame & post. HTH Wink

Ta too Phil and Martyn.

Think Ross means the fact that the wind has blown the grasses into a blur Paul, thus making them indistinct.

Seems fine to me, as this is what you would expect with the wind blowing, witness the reeds blowing in the Loch. Love that light on the distant hills behind the lone tree.

And you said you got no decent shots from this meet. Shame on you!!

Thanks for clearing that up Martin, there's a little movement in the grass but not that much, but it's that fine stuff so maybe that's why it appears to have little detail.
