Rising Mist...

By Scottishlandscapes  
...the sun was gently lifting the mist to reveal the slopes of Ben Starav.
An arrowhead of colour reflected in the dark waters of Loch Etive. A day to remember for the few photographers dotted along the loch that day.

Definitely something special, the contrast between the cold ethereal mist and the warm tones and textures of the rock.

Wonderful perspective. The clarity of the left shore line seizes the attention, the mist drags it into the patch of light and swirls it round deliciously between sky and water.

Bill

I hope my new V3 is to your taste!

No it doesn't Johanna, like me you're still learning, I've spent my life in photography, it has to have helped or I've wasted my working life.
Your work is wonderful and you have so many friends here, don't lose heart please. You bring joy to so many with your images and poetry and knowledge of the world, you are one of our STARS.

All the very best my friend,
