Hi all,
The Glenfinnan Monument situated here at the head of Loch Shiel was erected in 1815 to mark the place where Prince Charles Edward Stuart ("Bonnie Prince Charlie") raised his standard, at the beginning of the 1745 Jacobite Rising.

On the road again today, saying on the flat for a bit. Set of at 1.00am drove through the night. It was still dark when I pulled into the carpark. So headed round the coast and came back later to do this. Have uploaded 2 images you can choose the best pov....I like this one. I had about 5 minutes to get this shot before the tour bus emptied out. Could not understand why, because the place dose not open till 9.ooam.............

Thanks again for all the great comments and votes.................

Paul.

Two great shots Paul, but I prefer v2, the lead in is stronger and more defined and the brighter low cloud between the hills adds that little bit extra for me. Either way two great shots.

I'm with Mark even before I read his comment - I too prefer V2 with the lead in,
the low lying cloud and the lovely light.
We were up here last week but didn't visit The Monument and missed out on the Jacobite crosssing the Glenfinnan Aqueduct -
these are now on my list for future visits. If you were right along to Maillaig, I'll be interested to see what you captured alon gthe way!
Wonderful scenery!
Brilliant sky for so early Paul.
Glad you're getting about again - do take care.

I wished I had been around in these days Paul.
Not that I have a desire to fight alongside the Bonnie Prince.
But you must have got a gallon of ale for about 2p.
And it would have been served up by a nice busty serving wench too !!

I like history lessons Mick B I was never very interested in Royals, generals and the ENArchists ruling our country. But I like the approach they show in many historic Scotland monuments: how did they make beer, steel or keep the place warm.. where and how did the normal people survive?

Yes, it is a great shot, not sure which one I prefer. V1 stands out stronger for me.. V2 has a bit too much foreground for me but the landscape shines.
