Hi Dougie, thanks so very much 4 your love generous comment so much appreciated and from such a talented person I feel very honoured indeed. This is another stunning capture beautifully done. Still struggling on with my cast really slowing me down sorry 2 be short and missed so much of your work.

Lovely sky & reflections, thought it might have been better if you could have got the castle in the centre of the loch on the other third. Ho=wever, looking at your already precarious position, it may not have been possible to wade out further. All the same it gets my vote.

Smile In the 70's it was two local/rival coal merchants.Young Bros in Ballachulish and Alistair Mcinnes ['The Dren'] from Glencoe, but his coal shed was in the the big slate quarry in 'Balla'.May sound strange but I enjoyed my spell being a coalman!!.We had a lovely 'round' Wink

Last time I was there, Dougie, it was dull and dreich. At least you have been blessed with a fine day for this excellent shot of both monster and Castle.

You got me smiling here Dougie. As usual, without looking at the title (I always try to guess where it was taken) I opened the large version and I thought - wow! I didn't know Loch Linnhe has its own monster! Then I saw the title... Smile
Great composition, wonderful sky and reflections.
Hope you have a great weekend my friend,
Johanna

There's definitely something beastly about that intriguing rock formation! One of the things I love about this, Dougie, is the way you've positioned the rock so that it doesn't stand taller than the castle, while the tide mark on the rock appears to be a continuation of the line of the distant hills.
