A seascape from Easter Monday, the view out across the Firth of Clyde with Turnberry Point Lighthouse extreme left and the volcanic plug of Ailsa Craig (famous for it's granite used in the manufacture of curling stones) on the right.
After a glorious afternoon, the clouds rolled in and the light intensity dimmed substantially but produced a more photogenic opportunity. I hope I have done it justice.

My thanks to all who found time to comment on Waterfall and Rock Pool.

Ronnie.

Oh that is a fine panorama, the fine light turns a dull day by magic into a glorious one. The grey sky dsiplays all sorts of pastel colours and nicely complements the silver.
I like the lighthouse as you can imagine.. good job I didn't choose Turnberry tonight Smile

The River Clyde in all it's silvery splendour Ronnie, I'm sure that many of the Irish people on boats turned to have a last look at Ireland fading in the light, would find the island had slipped from view in the mist along the horizon. The Clyde is quietly regaining her beauty as the filth of the cities and the industrial waste is washed away and the water sparkles once again, salmon are returning and the occasional seal can be seen up in Glasgow, on a sight seeing trip.

Magnificent vista, Ronnie. It is hard to tell if this is the calm before the weather closes in, or immediately after the weather has past through. Dark, moody and dramatic, or the new dawn of hope?
