"That Tree at Milarrochy Bay"

By RonnieAG
My interpretation of this oft photographed tree at Milarrochy Bay, L. Lomond, with the hills behind Luss in the background.
The photo was taken on the same day as my last posting and I had to wait for light to break through the extensive cloud cover.
(The hills are: Beinn Ruisig behind the tree, Beinn Eich the conical hill just to R of centre, and Beinn Dubh to the right)

Details: ISO 500, 1/125 sec. at f/18.0 with Exp. Bias of -0.33 and with 0.6 ND Grad. (No processing was involved other than to correct a 1 degree tilt and subsequent crop).

Many thanks to all who commented on and voted for "Light and Shade"......all very welcome.

This is an amazing shot, i particularly like the fact that the tree isn't in the center of the photo, it gives it a really nice feel Smile

The tree looks lonely Ronnie. So close to the inviting water but not close enough. Well captured.........Sandy

Just beautiful! I love your floral image which are always 1st rate, but you are right in believing that your landscapes are better yet.

Out and about again Ronnie, love the line of mist clinging to the side of Bein Ruisig, makes it for me.

Morning Ronnie. You've produced a cracker here - like the way you've thrown the tree into silhouette and the wisps of low cloud on the distant hills. Last time I was at Milarrochy Bay was about 15 years ago and in our camper van. Thanks for the memories. Paul
