A wonderful image Richard and while your printing it for the wall you may need to do a few extra as I can see you selling one or two of these.

Very impressive. I'm sure it will look fantastic on your wall, mind you I'm surprised you've got any wall space left! Must have been quite special to be out on a morning like this Smile

gosh that was quick, I only went for a shower...many thanks everyone I'm glad you seem to like it Smile

I'm thinking 16 x 24" metallic print framed for my wall...but you're right, there isn't much space left Den!

It was an amazing morning, the drive I will remember for a long time....and then the balancing act on the slippy stones so we didn't breach our wellies with cold loch water!

fingers crossed it sells well too Les Smile

Great colour and I like the composition Richard. I think in fairness to beginners you need to change your 'beginner' status to something a fair bit higher. Cracking shot it needs to be on a wall(or two)

Best Wishes Tony

You could always be really flash and get it printed onto a duvet cover if you're pushed for space, or would that just be sad? - don't answer that Tongue

Mint of a shot mate!

What I loved about the lochs up there was how clear they were when the wind was still , it's lovely to see the rocks under the water in this shot. You definatly got the lucky sunrise straw Smile

Sure is a beauty Richard. Just checked mine from about the same moment, have the light, the mist and the same subjects, but not the comp. After I have finished developing my anti rain device and anti-mist filters I am going to turn my attention to a double decker tripod Wink

13 Nov 2009 10:07AM
thanks everyone Smile

They were truly stunning under the right conditions Angie weren't they. When I see the large shot of the 3 sisters I may wish I had pressed that button! Wink

I am going to turn my attention to a double decker tripod

pmsl!!, can you invent some toggers underwater stilts too so we can get out further into the loch?

May move that double decker tripod up the product R&D backlog Wink

Congrats on the HC Rich. That is one a piece from this location now. I still think either you or Paul has an EC worthy one waiting in the wings though.
