Went over to Skye for the day on Sunday despite a poor forecast and discovered the weather was lovely, so we decided to stay over as I had the day off yesterday.

Iíve photographed this castle many times before, but just couldnít resist popping back over to the mainland at sunset to get another shot. This one was taken at about 10.30pm. Just two versions today Smile

Back to the real world of work today, worst luck :-(

PS. It was lovely to have my Canon 40D and Sigma 10-20 lens back and Iím going to guard them with my life from now on Smile

Wonderful Sue. Nice to see the 40D hasn't suffered. 10.30pm, that's dedication.

Nicely done again, Sue.

I'm going to have to choose V1.5 again! - Top half from V1; the Loch & reflections from V2. Awkward sod, ain't I ?!? Wink

Cheers

Good morning, Sue - looks and sounds like you had a good day out...and what a super sunset. I'm very envious! Think I prefer the slighter lighter V1, but both are excellent, and definitely one for my favourites.

Cracking shot Sue - that sky is something else. V1 with the lighter processing has a little more detail.

Another lovely shot, nicely composed and photographed. Looks like you got lucky at last with the Sunset Sue, and a briliant location for it.

John SmileX

P.S. V1 for me this time. A little more to see with the extra light.
