...a little rocky promontary where oyster catchers devour muscles & discard the shells also anglers leave fag packets and cans, shame on you. The Oyster Catchers don't know any better.

Stunning landscape, nice capture.


Wow!!!!! What a beautiful shot of a lovely place

The water looks cold, almost frozen... is it really again that time of the year, to expect ice on the water??? I hope not!
The clearness of the water is amazing.


Loch Leven is a sea loch and the tide washes the shores daily. Just round the corner the ferry used to ply from side to side of the narrows which see the fast flowing water as the tides turn in and out, it fairly flies through the narrows. No sign of ice as yet it was cold in the morning but warmed up a lot later in the day. There's change in the weather though, cold nights to make you snuggle under the duvet.
Thanks for your visit Johanna, you always leave such good comments ith your greta knowledge of Scotland and it's songs & poetry. WinkGrinSmile

Well said Dougie, I do wish folk would take their rubbish with them. A beautiful landscape and I like the clarity of the water at the edges, allowing you to see the mussels. Moira


Classic Dougie, a reminder of how beautiful Scotland can be !! Ron.


Some people just dont think no excuse but it doesnt take much effort to put rubbish in the right place or take it home. Good picture despite the fag endsWink great reflections


Lovely recession and perspective, wonderful choice of viewpoint. The definition in the foreground and the rocky promontory is superb and stresses the diagonal division of the composition, with the upper right being a softer, mistier distance.
I think Autumn began here six days ago......

The clarity from back to front is excellent and the detail in the foreground (forewater?) superb. An image of delightful surprises.



Like the details and good comp too Dougie, well worked


Great composition and a reminder that Autumn is almost here (which I love!)! Love the empty shells - but people's discarded rubbish is inexcusable!


A super image Dougie but you cannot expect people to clutter their cars up with rubbish.It's much easier to leave it there.Who wants fag ends and dirty wrappings in their pristine vehicles.


beautiful reflection and a cracking composition.
the water is sooo clear!


A lovely composed image Dougie. Too bad some people just can't pick up after themselves...........Sandy

Marvellous choice of location with that highly detailed underwater foreground and the rock outcrop on the left.
Humans choose to do most things. The creatures of Nature use the instincts they are born with.
We are not that clever.
