I remember driving over the bridge on the A9 here once and the colours were amazing. But, as you say Dougie, this is about that sky. It's beautiful - and aren't we lucky to get enjoyment from the simple things of life like this?

I know this spot so well, Dougie: when the children were young we often took a chalet at Logierait and most days went into Pitlochry and walked around the loch shores, often crossing on the metal footbridge that lies under the road bridge here.
The colours are starting to develop and as you say the sky was begging for a shot to be taken.

Haven't been there since I was fifteen or so. It looks as if it has grown!
You are right about the birders - there were a couple of spotting scopes involved - but I'll leave the solution till tomorrow!
Cheers Bill. Wink

The crop enhances the broad, expansive feel. My eye wants to rotate this a couple of degrees anti-clockwise, that may be an illusion created by the lie of the land.
You could well be right Moira the lay of the land is confusing despite being there many times.

If you can get this sky in about two weeks time I think it could be interesting Dougie.

At first glance I felt this lacked a point of interest in the loch, but after coming back to it, I feel it is lacking in nothing, Dougie. This is as you say all about the sky, and a poi in the water would detract from the impressive are above.
