This image captures the sun setting over Morton Reservoir with an attractive cloud formation and was taken after I managed to persuade the gamekeeper that I wasn't a poacher. The reservoir was formerly part of the public water supply and although still owned by Scottish Water it has been leased to Morton Fishings, a commercial fishery, since 1983. The reservoir is located near the New Town of Livingston and the village of East Calder.

Thanks to Baz72 e2 Member for some post processing advice having seen an earlier version of this shot.
