Loch Leven

By Sue_R  
Still working my way through the photos I took while down in the Glen Coe area over Christmas. This is another shot of the view from the hotel room. Went out to take it again of course and, as you can see, the weather did clear up very briefly on Christmas Day, but only after we'd give up on Rannoch Moor and headed back down to the hotel for Christmas dinner. Typical! Sad

Off work at the moment as I have some sort of flu-like virus - feeling really rough and lost my voice (Phil isn't complaining about the last bit though Smile)

Many thanks for your votes and comments on my last upload. They really are much appreciated. And special thanks to Phil (Brownstonechip) and Geoff (Trout_Man) for their User Awards.

What a wonderful view from your room, Sue. I can see a square crop from the bottom half (as a version).

Thanks Dave. I tried the square crop before uploading as it jumped out at me too, but felt the image lost something when cropped in this way. This shot was intentionally taken with the boat on the thirds line and to make the most of the beautiful sky.

I really like the slow water movement and the green boat is a fabulous FP. I like this version with all the sky as it enhances the feel of remoteness and smallness of the boat in the landscape. One of your best yet I think! Smile

Such lovely light and the reflections are beautiful.

Take good care of yourself. If it's the same variety of flu people have gone down with in the Borders, it's not one to treat lightly!

I shouldn't have flu at all. I had a flu jab in the hope of avoiding this. Just my luck to get something the jab didn't cover :-(

It certainly looks like you had a bit better weather than we had in north Wales! And although I could see the sea from my hotel room window, the view wasn't as beautiful as this.
So sorry to hear you're not well, Sue, and that you've lost your voice Sad
Take care and hope you're soon on the mend,
