Quite amazing. The sky like a stormy sea, everything in motion. Except for that calm, cool, firm line of earth along the bottom of the frame. That's so important, it prevents the whole frame from flying away.

Wonderfully dramatic with beautiful tones and great energy Dougie. At first I thought they were crashing waves.
Nothing to do with just receiving your UA, but I'll have to give you mine for this Smile

This Misty Isle.......so well named as this image demonstrates, Dougie: just enough breaks in the clouds to allow a glimpse of the landforms.
I guess this sort of image is so much more characteristic of Skye than bright blue skies and sun drenched mountainsides.

Wow Many Thanks Keith, 4 in one day makes my head swim.

I have an aversion to things with too many legs hence my no show on todays image.

I'll never catch up with all of your pics Dougie, but looking at your page, this one just leaps out at me... it's definitely my kind of image... superb contrasts between the mist/cloud and dark brooding mountain, I love it Smile
