Black Loch in Blairgowrie, Perthshire - actually situated in a golf course that i sneeked through the fence too very early in the morning to catch the mist.

The mist was quickly lifting and a few second later the sun completely bleached out the scene so I only managed to get 2 shots - i'm pretty happy with this although i would have liked to have got a bit more detail in the sky!

A really nice capture and I would imagine that it might be worth a trip back through the fence again as I'm sure the area has many further photographic opportunities.

The morning mist makes the shot. Nowhere near as good without it or in 'normal' conditions. I think darkening the misty area would not be a good idea as it would quickly go drab and grey. Very simple and basic, but better for it. Assume you used camera support with such a slow shutter speed.

Thanks - and yes my camera 'off' a tripod is a very rare thing indeed!

Lovely image with great atmosphere. Good possibilities for a fine mono I reckon.

Its a beautiful shot, and well worth sneaking into the club.


Its very good as is, but I have attempted to give two different looks.

Mod1, has more space in front of the boat, less behind, space removed at the bottom, a slightly warmer tone, and exposure lifted a little in the foreground. Mod2 is a desat/sepia effect from the colour look up tables in CS6, and its called candlelight.
