Turbulence Passed

By almiles    
Shortly after sunrise this morning. Now I don't work Fridays I get 'Foto Friday!', where I can use a substantial part of the day (arranged around taking the kids to school) for photography. Coz I'm feeling mostly recovered from my recent op, I made the effort to go out early. Sunrise wasn't much cop but persistence paid off and the sun eventually broke through, illuminating the castle on Loch an Eilein. The title is a pun, there had been a wind on the surface shortly before this image which looks so serene. It also, of course, refers to the past of the castle.

The portrait format again works well here and with the far shoreline placed on the upper third allowing the land mass and the reflections to occupy that portion of the frame.
The way the cloud reflection has been captured and filling the lower third is so effective and seems almost polarised.
Lovely work as ever, Alan.

Wow.... I wasn't expecting that wonderful fg as I scrolled down the image!

This is a superb image, Al!
Such a good example of the rule of thirds!

The reflection in the foreground was something I was not expecting, amazing cature well presented.

Beautiful serene shot Al ,nicely composed and I like the way the reflected cloud in the lower half of the shot manages to enhance the fg and a sumptuous bit of the light on the castle Smile

the classic reflection type shot in a square format there too, but its superb that you have added the extra f/g of those rocks under that water. real nice.

Hi Al I like this , great the way the reflection of the sky gives way to the detail in the bottom of the Loch in the foreground , but don't give us any of this OF COURSE rubbish , it looks more like a wall than a castle , and 99.9 % of people will not know anything about the HISTORY of this castle / wall , sorry on the the pop again . ( but I,m right ) . Glad you are have the Friday off DON'T LET THAT SLiP , have just wasted 9.5 hours of my life fitting an engine into Renault , I,m wasting my existence , stay well , Kel

And there's me think your title might refer to your digestive system! Grin. Lovely oblique sunlight and strong reflections but it is the ruddy foreground tones mixed with the cloud reflections that looks so good, Al.

I really like your composition Alan. The central position of the castle makes a bold statement and the high horizon allows the interest of the foreground plenty of 'elbow room'. That light was worth waiting for.
