Magnificent. The scale created by the house delivers a powerful image

Looks like a view across Loch Slapin Dougie if I am not mistaken. Stayed in a cottage on this side recently,

That's the one but it's taken from a good bit back from the Loch which is over a hill from the cottage (just before the marble quarry).

'Blaven' if I remember rightly ?.....& what majestic impact from this viewpoint, love the sort of overpowering might of the mountain looming over the cottage....cracker this one Dougie !!!!

It's been many years since I was there, but I always remember the 'milky' water along one area of the loch....so it must have come from that 'marble quarry'...another riddle solved !Grin

Absolutely superb Dougie. I am guessing that this was a fairly long lens?

Wonderful light Dougie and great perspective to show the house dwarfed by the mountains in this way.
