...Loch Slapin is where the Elgol fishing fleet come during stormy weather. It's sheltered but further away from the open sea.
For me it's perfect because it so often sits quietly with a mirror surface, like here.

So you've decided to have a go at a reflection shot then, Dougie? GrinGrinGrin

Tranquillity? ...yes please, can't get enough of it.

You've really shown that very still atmsphere that's so frequent there. A gorgeous part of Skye. The red boat works well even at that size to anchor the eye.

The stillness of the water and the quality of the reflection gives the image an almost otherworldy appearance. The foreground brings the image down to earth. Superb Dougie.

They don't come much better than this Dougie. A magnificent scene., So clear and sharp and the water held its breath for you to get that perfect reflection, I feel.

A beautifully natural image, Dougie, in which the light emphasises every line and detail in those distant hills. The reflections are superb - with just a shimmer in the reflected peaks - and the red boat is a special element that helps to underline the rare tranquillity.
