An image from March 2010 but converted to B and W..........the view is across Loch Lomond from Craigie Fort to the hills behind Luss on the western shore.......the main island in the scene is Inchfad and the conical hill to the left is Beinn Eich.

My thanks to all who commented on and made useful suggestions regarding An Autumnal Study.
