Dawn at Loch Katrine

By colmar  
Good Morning,

A shot of Loch Katrine very early morning just as dawn broke back in October of last year. A very wet and misty morning, no matter was grand to be there, and with no one else about a peace and tranquility I go use every day Smile Loch Katrine supplies the water for the good folks of Glasgow. I managed to stop Mari polluting it ( she is from Edinburgh after all ) .

I suggest large for a larger view Smile
and for window users f11 and ctrl+ ..... for mac user large and cmd+

Many thanks for the comment and votes on I am Smiling ! , hope to have another chance in the near future with my NOW increased knowledge of these fine animals and my equipment ,and indeed a few other images , all votes and constructive comment are gratefully received and truly appreciated. Colin and Mari

Very atmospheric image. Loch Katrine a favourite place of mine and you have captured its essence. Wonderful tones and great placement of the island to allow attention to be drawn to the reflections and the calmness of the water.

Lovely colours appearing on the trees,a slightly moody/broody shot.Well taken Colin.Was this taken from aboard the Sir Walter Scott?.
The Trossachs are a gem when the Autumn leaves at at their peak.Not claiming they can rival 'New England in the fall' but................. Smile

Great shot, wish I was there, looks a bit like that out of the window here but the water is a very different colour, it's going at 58mph up here on the hill at the moment and the rain is coming in the front door so I have taped it up, such JOY !!
Take care

Afternoon, colin,
This is a lovely cool moody shot but with just the hint of the autumn colours there to add a little warmth. A most attractive composition.
Regards, Ronnie.

Ah! such tranquility Colin, an absolute joy to view large, as to the quality of the water, when Glasgow tapped into this source in the late 19th. century, they showed great foresight, though it was many years later before they discovered the water was TOO pure, and the cause of rickets in Glasgow children. Oh and it must be said I'd much rather drink from Loch Katrine than Loch Lomond, as the good folk of Edinburgh have to do!
