While we were in Assynt, I drove the ten minutes from the crofthouse to Loch Druim Suardalain on the one good evening we had to find this beautiful light over the loch and over Canisp (the hill shown) and Suilven (more later) - and was lucky to find the moon too. We're just back, so I'll catch up with everybody's work tomorrow.
Criticisms and comments are very welcome - and thanks for looking in.

Interesting to see an image from this area after the recent snow. I like the reflection of the moon in the water.

I've got used to the curved reeds that appear against cold blue Highland water in Dougie's uploads, straight reeds give a very different feel. Almost like pen-strokes.
This is really beautiful Ann. It captures the clean, bracing air and light perfectly.

A "wish I was there" image, so beautiful Ann, and those trees stand out so well against the subtle background, with Canisp to the side, The White Mountain. I particularly like the light on the reeds, and the way they break up the reflection, it makes me stop and look again. The moon and its reflection are the icing on a magnificent cake.

One of Scotland's little gems, tucked away so close to the quiet bustle of Lochinver but jut far enough away to be silent and still as you wander along the singe track road and drink in the beauty. My first visit in 2004 is as fresh as this image, a place you don't ever forget The essence of Assynt in one little loch, and Canisp and Suilven sitting proudly behind. There will be some more from here Ann I'm sure of that.

Welcome back my friend, you've been well missed.
