Gorgeous. I love the lighter area front right, and the capture of the stone leading down into the water and the sky is gorgeous.

I love it but the touch of white on the right is slightly too bright and therefore is distracting my eye a touch. The foreground is superb.

By the way I love the addition of the bird Wink

This is still on my wish list of places to visit - didn't get the time this year, on my way to Scotland. But it's easy to see why it's an attractive place. Well composed and exposed capture.

Hey Simon, you nailed this one. I wish I could find something like this near my house. That foreground is so detailed, and the cloud movement spreads light to just where it is needed the most. I'll look at your archives when I'm not at work . I bet there's some good stuff in there!
