I waited around for ages for some useful light and finally got a sliver before the clouds rolled in and rain stopped play.

Patience well rewarded yet again, Alun. The grey cloud and reflection sandwich a beautiful scene.

Many thanks to you all. I could see the potential of the scene although moments prior to this it was dull, flat and uninspiring. I spent a lot of time here over the four rainy days I experienced but this and a few others were the only useable Lochan Na h-Achlaise shots I managed.
A big thanks to Jennie, Sue and Chris for their UA's. Very much appreciated.

Your wait was so worth while, the light and winter colours so well captured in this composition, the crisp reflections the icing on the cake.
The image has a wonderful clarity and one can almost breathe in the fresh crisp air.

I have an addiction for this place as you may have noticed. The panorama format plus the dusting make for a grand image from this loch, well done on the patience front too.

Thanks a lot. I took a gamble by plonking the Black Mount framed by trees in the middle of the frame. I felt the composition was about symmetry and balance more than specific focal points so I appreciate the positive feedback.
Dougie - I half expected to meet you there knowing how you have captured this location in so many moods. Smile

A great landscape where you've managed to show the natural beauty perfectly without being ostentatious with Photoshop.
