"I Took The High Road"

By RonnieAG
Managed a trip out of town yesterday and this is a view looking north up Loch Lomond from Craigie Fort, taking in the Arrochar Alps and Ben Lomond.
The autumn colours are not yet fully developed yet here.
There is a drop of over 100 ft. down to the lochside just to the left of my stance which was on quite a steep slope as it was.

Many thanks to all for the nice comments on Autumn Comes Indoors, and special thank you to Andy {andylea} for his User Award.Ronnie.

Autumn splendour - blue and gold in fine tones and a stunning landscape. Well composed and perfect tones.
So good you went there and shared this, these are views we never get here for the lack of lakes and mountain ranges.

I was thinking the same as Mick, immediately the series 'Take the high road' came to mind Grin. Beautiful scenery, Ronnie, perfectly captured. Carol

A fine capture of this beautiful scene Ronnie ~ perhaps needed a suitable boat on the Loch to complete the picture.

Excellent composition Ronnie, drawing our eyes through to the hills in the distance. This does have a lovely autumnal feel, although I know the colours can be much more spectacular.
