View yesterday afternoon looking SW across Loch Lomond at Milarrochy Bay. Most of the time there was a heavy overcast, but just occasionally light burst through the cloud layers.
It was great to get away from the big city to the peace and tranquillity of this spot!
Viewing LARGE is I believe worthwhile if time permits.

Details: ISO 500, 1/200 sec. at f/18.0 with Exp. Bias of -0.33 and with 0.6 ND Grad.

Many thanks to all who commented on and voted for "National Trust" Rose 2.
And a very special thanks to "Lillian" for her UA, and also to "accipiter" for his UA for my previous posting "Teasing Georgia".

Ronnie.

I like the rocks leading into the the image Ronnie, and the tones and rays in the sky.

Wondrous scenic capture & image rendering of Loch Lomond with that beautiful sky color & rays of light "thru the clouds," excellent color, clarity, & depth, and artistic composition. Well done, Ronnie. Regards...Peter

Really like the angle of the shot and the composition is fabulous. The rocks draw the eye into your image and across the water.
Brilliant !

A fine composition Ronnie. I love the menacing sky and the super lead in line from the rocks. The little white puffs of clouds on the horizon balance the sky so well. Great stuff.

Cheers,
Joe

Beautifully composed view, a great capture Ronnie, love these two 'low-flying' clouds and, of course the rock lead-in. must have been put there - I wonder why!
From all I've been hearing about your weather I'm sure we were glad to get away, if only for a brief spell. My youngest daughter is enjoying her holiday, despite the weather, going off to Aviemore today for two nights camping with her older sister.
