Just had a look at your portfolio - interesting to compare it to the non-snowy version. This is an absolute winner.

I know its probably the most photographed cottage in the UK but its an excellent shot (and much better than Charles Kennedy's Christmas card!).

It looks a little bit unsharp, especially on the foreground rock, but the image is excellent. Exposure is spot on.

This is absolutely enchanting, Douglas. If it were a Christmas card I'd buy it without a second thought.

Lovely shot Douglas, must be the shot of the day...the snow sliding of the roof gives it an different look...I think you now have the edge on us all for the post of resident Blackrock photographer, lol...nice meeting you at this site, have a good week.
PS. Merry Christmas and a happy new year to you and yours.

This is one of the best shots of Blackrock I have seen. As I was there yesterday, I am kicking myself for not getting to it before the best light had gone. I guess I got too tied up at some of the other locations en route. The conditions were just so good yesterday and you have really done the lighting justice. Well done
Merry Christmas

Think you got a deckchair with your name on it set up there Dougie!

Fabulous shot, no more, no less.

You may not be aware but the card from Charlie was put out by the Press Association as a cottage near Inverness...Yes Right!!! where is the Watford Gap???
They all dont give a ****about Scotland.
To all for their comments...Thanks I was lucky to be there at the right time and see the light the way I did. It's all abou timimg and seeing. I don't have a deck chair at Blackrock that wold be too comfortable.

My favourite version of Blackrock cottage. Although I've been here numerous times, I've never got a shot of it, let alone a stunner like this.

Thanks Dave
second guessing when the light is on the cottage is one thing second guessing all three points is pure luck. Only gamblers would have a system, mine is a secret.
Keep trying, good luck and All the best
