This is Ardvreck Castle on Loch Assynt with the Quinag in the background - taken about half an hour after sunrise. The castle is supposed to be haunted by two ghosts - one of them a young girl who killed herself after learning she was to be betrothed to the devil. Thankfully I learned all of this after the shoot - I didn't see or feel anything on the day.

Cool blue tones despite after sunrise, just a hint of warmth developing in the clouds: one can either use the 'stepping stones' or the sweep of the bay to take one to the focal point.
Interesting narrative too, Geoff.

Ardvrek looking at its best in the early morning light - Loch Assynt is so low because of the lack of rain; I've never seen it like this. Super composition.

Very Nice photo with lovely reflections. About the ghosts, may be they've gone on vacation that day Tongue Grin

A stunning image - I normally prefer warm colours but this is amazing.
