What wonderful mist! I've looked out at this and seen a plain pimple on the horizon, not this magic. Very simply beautiful.

Oh! I love this Dougie - wonderful rays of light, just visible through the cloud - and the mist! Super
Many Thanks for your award Ann, I'm surprised and delighted by two awards on a monochrome image. They match my delight when I found this from the cliffs above Dunure.

Bold and dramatic. The placement of Ailsa Craig puts the scale of the island in persective.

AFAIK Ailsa Craig used to be the only source of rock for curling stones in the world. I'm not sure if the rock is still used these days at all, but if it is it can't be much more than a cottage industry.

The rays shining down on to the mist on the horizon make for a most ethereal shot, Dougie......very nicely captured, and in a very original type composition.

It looks so distant with the mist separating the peak from the sea

Fantastic! Great light, the mist is absolutely beautiful, as is the sky and the wee island.
