Loch Lomond Sunrise

By digicammad  
Okay so I came home from work early because I couldn't wait any longer to sort out my photos from the Scottish meet! lol

This was taken at sunrise on Saturday morning. Ed, Becky, Brian and myself wandered 1 miles down (up?) the loch and found the Memorial Park, which proved to be as promising as it looked.

Exposure was 3 seconds for this one. Very little post processing has been done to it, slight adjustment to white balance and curves is all.

Once again, great meeting you all and a big thanks to everyone, especially Davie, for making a superb weekend.

All comment and critique welcomed.

I'd definitely put this on my wall - all the normal terminology has been used already (gorgeous, stunning, superb, cracking etc) so in order to not be repetitive, I shall simply pull my chin up off the floor, and say "Wow!"

You guys seem to have wondered to a great spot - as opposed to us who went around the other side.

You have really cought the modd of that morning.

Wow thanks everybody, that was quick!!

Paul, much as I would like to I can't claim credit for the first HC, I believe Ed got that one a few hours ago. I'm perfectly happy to be the second one though and it's nice to know so many people share my opinion of this shot.

Tanya - there is a high likelihood of this appearing on a wall near you (well me anyway) soon. :0)

You were obviously one of the lucky ones, Ian, who actually found some colour during the weekend. Smile This is a great shot, well composed, good FG interest and I love that mist over the water. Congrats on the HC.

Really great meeting you, and look forward to next year's meet!

Ooooh, so pretty, much better than my attempts at this one! But have learned so much from this weekend, I can't wait to get back out and practice more! And thanks so much for all your help with my stupid questions!

Thanks again everybody.

Davie, it was a pleasure for me too. :0)

Conrad it's happening again next year so get saving up and have a quiet word with Davie to reserve you a place or 2.

Russell, no problem. I've asked plenty of stupid questions in my time and still do. It's the best way to learn and judging by your shot you've learned a load already.

Pete - forgot to say before, thanks for the HC.
