Great depth, colour and calm Andy, but photographically I'm a bit concerned about that horizontal reflective division in the image - it breaks up the continuity for me.

Nevertheless to quote from above "a wonderful scene".

The lighting gives a serene quality to this excellent photograph. Dare I suggest that there is an equally good image with a crop off the foreground to just below the rock?? Perhaps I am being pedantic.

The only noise you hear down in the Glen is the sound of the estate owners counting their cash for the sale of the forrest cut down lately.

I like the way there is a 'stack' of cloud filling the 'V' between the mountains, Andy. That water is perfect, with a silver sliver just below the horizon where the water id disturbed by the breeze.
