What a fantastic sky scape view. Great colours..

I wonder why my friend? This is superb, the cloud immense and the sea so calm, The Clyde at Greenock seems to produce these phenomena. At least it always seems to be raining at Greenock.
I don't recall ever seeing a better sight from here than this. Many congratulations.

All the very best Kin,

Thanks Dougie I've never seen colours like it or the tiered cloud formations when I was there.

Thanks Richie

Liked the light? Absolute worship would not be inappropriate, I think. Special prize has to go to the little patch of blue beneath the cloud almost at far right, but the bronze on the water is terrific. Large is essential for the tiny detail on the land.
Fantastic shot.

Enormous sky really well exposed. It's just great to be out and about when nature produces this stuff.

Thanks Davey it was wonderful to view as you can see Smile
The golden light and its reflection, The CLOUD, th eblue patch of sky... make a most beautiful photo. The little ferry and its faint trace are a lovely detail. JNC

I like very south of the Border but have visited Scotland a few times recently visiting a friend in Glasgow. He can not understand why I rave about mountains and sky and the clouds and the views.............. this picture sums up why ...and also why he needs to get out more and start seeing his local landscape from a photographers point of view :o)

I'm just stunned by this, and so glad you've given the priority it deserves to the full of the cloud, it defines the scale for the whole pic, and the light beneath it is sublime. Awesome!

Unbelievable sky, wonderful light on the water. In another life, I used to visit in-laws who lived in Dunoon but I don't remember ever seeing the area when it wasn't grey or raining LOL.

Quite simply put - a stunning shot! It just goes to prove that lighting, along with an eye for a photograph is everything - well done mate. Chris
