Good contrast between the dark left side and light right side Dougie...looks like the weather was about to change for you.
Another perfection composition.

Comes alive when you view it large Dougie, do like the light on the foreground against the moody sky.
Good work.

Oh boy that's atmospheric. The reeds seem to be bending under the weight of the approaching weather front.

Very fine, Dougie; it has an entirely different feel to yesterday's, proving just what a minimal change of viewpoint can achieve can do. The snow-clad mountains are most impressive beneath that lowering cloud.

Moody sky and nice lighting on the f.g reeds, and I can feel the cold of this place. Another superb winter landscape photo to add to your PF Dougie.
