...one of the very few lakes in Scotland, and flat calm like the others, the reeds caught my eye.
***I posted the wrong version and it's now on as a variant.***
Classic comp- calm image
Now that's a reflection. All those lines pointing the same way in a perfect composition... pure harmony.
Beautiful image Dougie, lovely reflections
The composition is perfect with the land sloping away gradually - and those wonderful reflections and light really make this Dougie. I wonder why it's called a lake? I'm off to Mr Google to see if he'll provide the answer! Just back - and I see nobody knows why!
Well composed Dougie with the clouds echoing the reeds nicely.
Beautiful light on that distant shore Dougie.
The off centre comp works well with the higher horizon because the clouds fill in the FG water very nicely. The reflection as others have pointed out is beautiful and the reeds add extra depth. Bonny light on the far bank too.

According to Mr Wikipedia 'This unusual name is believed to be due to a corruption by 16th-century Dutch cartographers of the Lowland Scots Laich o Menteith, where "laich" simply means "low place".'
Phil I saw that after reading Ann chow's comment I had always said that the "Lake" of Menteith was unique in Scotland seems different.
A splendid reflection Dougie.
I just kinda thought they were called Lakes in England,
and Lochs in Scotland !!
Lovely reflections in the lake an colour in those reeds.
Such calm stillness, so relaxing!
A lovely calming image combining autumn into
that wonderful scene and reflection
Very calming Dougie
The second version is subtly improved, the increased saturation especially noticeable around the reed bed. Thanks for the pm, well worth the re-visit.
All the ingredients make the whole a smashing image.
Beautiful !!.....you seem to attract flat-water on your travels !!......like the richer colors in V2 !!
The slight added richness of colour in V2 is nice, but the darkness at the bottom of the frame seems just a little excessive to me???...Lift it a touch, just there, perhaps?
You know best, Dougie, you were there... and heaven knows, you've a steady hand on the tiller
But it's all just hair-splitting anyway
Beautiful reflections on the water in this great landscape!
not a ripple in sight ...
Great light on the reeds
A very beautiful image of the wee lake. A beautiful place,
Love all those cloud reflections on the water, and the overall reflections being broken by the golden reeds only.
