Symmetry

By tartanlady
The light was only catching the top of the Aonach Eagach Ridge when we passed by Loch Achtriochtan at the weekend but the mirror image was reflected perfectly onto the still water of the loch enabling me to capture this shot.

Lovely image. The composition and colour is superb.

On my Wind Mills photo you commented on the lack of description. I left you this note.

Sorry Louise.
The photo was taken on the island of Majorca where you can find thousands of theese windmills used to pump water from wells. Most of them are not used and in poor state.
