...The fog was all gone from a half hour earlier, the sun was shining and a blue sky appeared over the Loch, I could never have guessed a boat would be sitting here with the mountain behind.

Beautiful Dougie, perfect low winter sun and the light picking up the Pap of Glencoe is lovely.

Another fine shot from Loch Leven, Dougie: we have seen a few from this area recently.
The boat could not have been better placed for you once the fog lifted, although I expect it's placement in the scene is more likely to be due to your good self.

Those blueish cloud shadows over the different slopes do it every time for me, they add structure and contours. Idyllic.

Great timing and PoV to get the low light modelling of the land in this well proportioned image. That green boat is a lovely bit of FG interest and featured in Sue R's recent uploads of the loch so I guess it's a winter mooring?

Yes Al it looks as if that's just what it is. I did a trawl of the site after Ronnie's comment and found a couple of shots with the boat in.

Exquisite winter light Dougie, green is an interesting and different colour for a boat!
Ron left me while we were having dinner overlooking the Pap to rush out and take photos of the mini alpine glow some years ago!!

I hadn't read the included comment but was thinking exactly the same then read the one already posted and thought "I can't say better than this" so there you go Dougie I love it Smile

I thought I had commented on this one earlier..another senior moment.
The boat is just in the right place Dougie breaking up that expanse of water.

I like the inclusion of the boat Dougie and nicely positioned in the scene, must be enjoying a wonderful view. Great light on the mountain too.

We were delighted to find the boat there too. It really does make the image.

A lovely image of this historic Loch ! Always feel so sad when I think of Q. Mary locked up on the island.On the tourist information board at the loch side it state the key to the castle was lost . I visited Walter Scott's Abbotsford House and guess what the key is displayed among his collection!Winkgill

Awwwww, this is again one of those getting me homesick! The boat, in line with the Pap, the wonderful blue sky reflecting in the loch, the beautiful light on the hills... ache, ache, ache...
