I never tire of this scene which is so familiar, but every take is different depending on the time of year, weather conditions, time of day and colours.
Like this one a lot, Bill: it does look as if there's rain on the way from that heavy sky.
This boulder must be one of the most photographed but it makes an excellent f/g for Blackrock cottage and the Great Shepherd beyond.
Lovely work.

An outstanding image Bill. Great foreground and a dramatic sky. I have been there although a few years have passed. I love this part of Scotland and hope to return there one day. My main memory of this place was the midges lol. Congratulations on producing a fine piece of work.

great capture Bill, foreground interest leads nicely to cottage & mountain..the mountain almost looks like a volcano with the plum of mist around its peak!!

This is a cracking shot Bill. The foreground rock leading to the cottage with the mountain in the background makes for great composition. The cloudy sky above the mountain complete a superb shot. The detail large is excellent.

As good as they come, Bill. A nicely balanced arrangement of the major elements (does that sound a bit technical Tongue) and a luverly sky.
