Superb colour and light in this well composed image. The reflections in that still water work wonderfully too. Pretty sure I am right in saying it always rained when I was in Oban!

Super shot Colin, that is one magical place, just south of Oban town and looking across to Kerrera. The colours are always magical on a clear day, on The West Coast.
