Crannog - 1

By rhion
An opportunistic shot of the Crannog Centre at Loch Tay. As we drove towards it the sun came out and created a beautiful semi-silhoetted effect - Shonah and Richard leapt out of the car to grab the moment before it was lost (we've all been there haven't we?).
For those taking notes, a crannog is a dwelling in a loch (or lough), almost exclusively in Scotland or Ireland where they are numerous. The Crannog Centre is well worth a visit if you're up that way.
Sharp-eyed viewers will notice this is Crannog "1" - will there be a number "2"? We'll see, we'll see...

Thanks for your comments, they're noted but I don't like manipulating my shots more than absolutly necassary. I notice you did not click, it that because of the comments you made or a genuine error. Now for this shot....I like the atmospheric look to it. It works well in b&w but I'd love to compare it to a colour veriosn. Still a great shot

Fair enough Mike (full reply added to your picture).
Thank you for the kind words here. This is actually colour, albeit de-saturated as the colour that was there seemed (to me) to be a distraction as the scene is a near-silhoette.
Talking of clicks, was your lack of a click here a genuine error or a thumbs down?

Love the moody feeling of this picture. I can see why you like to convert to black and white. As you suggested I will try it on some of my pictures.

Nice shot. Great tones - isn't it great when you just happen to come across a shot like this. Den Smile

Julie and Don - many thanks, much appreciated. It is indeed part of the fun - the fleeting moment, frustrating but so satisfying when caught.

Saw this earlier but didn't get the chance to comment. The picture is so full of atmosphere and you really get a feeling of being somewhere very cold and isolated. I like the way your eye is drawn down the mountains and then led back across the the jetty to the Crannog.

A very Scottish image - really like it.
