...during the storm that loomed over the mountains a blue mood descended on the land, sea mist rushed up with the incoming tide.

I like this one a lot, Dougie: a cool blue scene from the far north, atmospheric +++ the more so with that band of mist across the lower slopes of the Ben but with some good detail still evident in the steep upper slopes.

make a rather splendid seascape

Beautiful and arty image. Restricted tones work so well here where the layers and lines hold such interest

Once in a blue mood, perhaps? Stunning.

Well... now you've done it. I have the Ben Loyal blues... I need Runrig now. Going to have them blaring:

By Ben Hope and Ben Loyal
By Stack and by Arkle
The road reaches far
Now the summer is here

Quite atmospheric on its own way, perhaps not the best place in a storm but so beautiful in summer and on a good day

Many Many Thanks for the wondeful "RUNRIG" Johanna. I must get this for my collection to play on the moors and down the glens, when I call your name into the Scottish mists.

Certainly a cool blue here Dougie.
Could be a landscape in Iceland.
(Well,I did mention I do not know Scotland at all !!)
Good shot.
