Hi Keith,

I had to sprint down the lochside to try and get the best position, the boat was moving pretty fast. I then had to try and hold the camera steady while I was gasping for breath! All good fun though and such a change from standing next to a tripod for hours on end!

This wonderfully detailed mono image is a joy on it's own right without the wee boat, a great and serene addition to this fine image, another stunner my friend.
Do you have all the Canon lenses or have I missed on in the catalogue?

All the very best and thanks for the advice earlier,
Dougie

Dwarfed! You're not wrong Smile

Those mountains look huge and the boat certainly works well to show the scale - very nice conversion too

Superb use of the long lens to compress the mountains, which makes them really tower over the boat. Looks excellent in mono too.
