This was taken last November on a day which was supposed to fine all day. I waited till the rain stopped when I arrived, then ventured out to the monument. After waiting out the next shower in my car, I climbed the path to this viewpoint (the path resembled a gentle stream).
I know the conditions are murky, but I like the brighter patch in the distance, the depth, and the atmosphere in this shot.

Light, detail, tone, composition, mood, drama, depth, exposure, feeling, murk, colours, they all make it the fine picture we see. Thank you Nige.

And for waiting out the rain, several times, it makes it all the more precious.

A fine shot in the conditions. I went up here one day with a good forecast and got pretty much the same as this.

You certainly found a good view along the loch, seems to go on forever, and its framed just right by the hills on either side.

Thanks Peter, Rodd, Chris and Neil. Apart from the water running down the path, this is an easy viewpoint to reach from the carpark. According to my map, the Loch is around ten miles long.

It's the mood of the moment - but also a very unusual composition, contrasting the hard, formal lines of the path and tower with the natural shapes of the landscape, and giving a very striking lead-in.

I can now sympathise with a path that is like a stream after the floods we had. Anyway I liked seeing the big version because of not only the bright areas but just the geology of this valley and the storminess of it.
