My Lochan...

By Scottishlandscapes  
...on the Misty island of Skye, Loch Cill Chroisd, the weather rolled in from the Atlantic and the rain took over the landscape of this beautiful Loch on the road to Elgol, just for a few moments the light was this special. I can never pass this place without stopping and waiting for a few moments.

a majestically ornate scene, good to see the rocks at the bottom of the water.

I hope your fine Dougie Smile

The little bit of light on the reeds and the moody low lying cloud really make this Doug, Excellent stuff.

Gorgeous light on those reeds, contrasting so very well with the rain on the hillsides.

That waterfall looks interesting too, perhaps next time eh Dougie.

is that rain in the distance over the hills? it looks a very peaceful place. I can see why you stop there when you pass by. so pretty. I like the looks of it too.
Thanks to all for your kind comments, and thanks to you Pete for the HC. I had a great couple of days on Skye.

Well worth the diversion, I'd say. Smile

As you say, beautiful light on this, and I like how the reeds seem to echo the shape of the hills. Beautifully composed, Dougie.
