My son-in-law who cycles found this loch - one of over 1000 in Scotland - and took me yesterday bt car as it is off the beaten track. It is used by fishermen mostly.
Scrambled up this heather-clad hillock at roadside to get this pov.
I'm always scared when coming down slopes - I have no brakes!
Many thanks for V&C for In the Lochan.
Sorry I can't keep up with viewing all your images - wi-fi very sloooow!
P.S. I lined this up with water line but it still looks wrong!

nice view and colours
does the skyline need leveling is a question that remains to be answered

Good memories of this loch as I once fished there with my father. Some nice sized fish in this body of water. I like the heather colour and composition, but does it have a backward lean?

Love the heather. So beautiful. It's a strange one for levelling. I noticed too. It's level on the right and if you levelled the left would the right look off. It's a tough one.
Truly a Scottish image, It is level but deceives the eye. Well found and hope you didnt get too many bumps and bruises.

I think it's one of those images where you just have to go with what you feel comfortable with, anyway it's still a nice composition and the colours are lovely in the foreground.

Water level RH side is level Kate, it's the land shape with the trees on that's creating an illusion.

A lovely shot of a peaceful place I visited several years ago.

In my opinion you have got the level correct. The top right hand water edge is the horizontal.
The fact that the LHS tree line runs downhill a bit and forms a point with road creates the illusion.

I think it's the angle of the road that seems to make it look as though it isn't level even though it is. Anyway Kate the heather is beautiful and I like the way it contrasts with the variety of greens in the image.

There's great depth in this and it is obviously a lovely location.

Re the levelling, I tried fiddling with this image but it is a really tricky one. The only way I manage to get it to look right was with heavy tweaking and cropping.
