...in between sunshine and showers down the River Clyde near Portencross Castle. Ailsa Craig is in the gloom along the horizon.
Great dramatic image.
Excellent, I bet you're glad the boat was there!
A stunning image of the highest quality.
Love the layers of grey Dougie - this is full of atmosphere and you have to wonder why anyone would want to sail in these conditions!
Perfectly placed boat Dougie, full of menace too.
ou were so lucky that the boat just sailed into the right compositional position. Even the horizon is straight...some people have all the luck.
Love this one Dougie..the folk on the boat are in for a soaking by the looks of the rain clouds !
The horizontal banding and extra low horizon both add so much to this shot, Dougie: very moody and atmospheric, the downpours in the far distance raising the levels of the Firth and with that yacht's presence so necessary and so well positioned in the scene.
Looks like we are in for nasty weather, a great moood
Brilliant shot Dougie; one of my favourites of yours.
I do love the blue/grey effect created by distance, Dougie. The detail of Ailsa behind the veil of rain and the sail boat are the cherry on top of the proverbial cake here.
This should adorn your wall.
I envisage a slight crop, taking a slice off the top to give a more pano format?
Now that is some rain storm coming in well timed with the boat too Dougie
Just how it looks here at the moment, less the boat. Beautiful image............Sandy
Small yacht, big impact! Great stuff, Dougie.
Great capture of the downpours. Wouldn't like to be on that wee boat though . Moira
dramatic sky Dougie love the appearanceof the boat in the f/g
The placement of the boat emphasizes its loneliness in a grand and dramatic setting. Super work Dougie.
Amazing sight Dougie, and looks like that boat is going to have a rough ride ahead.
have a good weekend
This is wonderful, Dougie. Layer upon layer of atmospheric mood and drama. The boat and island may be dwarfed by their stormy environment, but they're critical. Fantastic.
Superb. A perfect candidate for printing large and hanging. Paul
Great atmosphere & drama - Love it.....
If there is someone saying, there is no charm in bad weather - this is the best ever image to prove this person wrong.
Absolutely brilliant image. Love it!
If I was in that boat, I's have been afraid, that with the downpour coming, the boat might sink.
There's nothing like layers of scottish weather to give a shot atmosphere! Poor wee yacht! Great shot!
Thank You Johanna for your award, I don't get many awards these days but when I get one from a good friend it means so much more.
Thanks to all for the kind comments on a moment I was lucky enough to see and catch and share with you all.
Lovely monochromatic shot Dougie and perfectly cropped too. One of those serendipitous moments when everything comes together and someone with skill and vision is there to capture it.
Love it! Big Sky. Tiny Boat.
Just love this ! It would make a fab poster ! Yes- did shed a few tears on saturday .and a few more while I've been editing and making collages from the 100 or so photos I took .
Lovely mood captured Doug and a good sense of scale.
Superb !!!!!!!!!....I love these simple images !, particularly when they've got the impact of this beaut !!.....love the 'power' in that sky, very impressive !!!
Great image Dougie, love the colour in the sky the simplicity of the scene and the boat makes the image just beautiful.
Wonderful mood in the sky.
