A becalmed view stretching across the Cromarty Firth from the Black Isle to Invergordon. A mere 24 hours on from the Spring Tide storms.

I can’t imagine the Cromarty Firth is as calm as that too often. Smashing image Scott.
Well I have been surprised how often I see the firths like this especially during winter
How beautiful! One of life’s little pleasures is watching the rigs sailing up and down the Cromarty Firth.
Yes – I see them queuing up on the Moray Firth to get in to the Suitor’s – it was a sublime evening
Outstanding Scott. Has an almost surreal look to it.
Phil it was 24 hours previous you simply would not have been standing there…..
That is truly amazing! Living near the southeast U.S. Atlantic seacoast I am a big fan in general of ‘after the storm’ type images.
I sometimes shoot weather for our local ABC TV news affiliate here.
Perfect blend of soft blues and pinks in a mellow landscape. Nicely done.
cheers Lyle – I like the gentle colour myself but still had impact
Not at all what I was expecting from the title. Quite a startling splash of color. Great shot!
surprise is good Gunta – surprise is good
You were at the right place at the right time for the right reason…wow!!!
Yes and we went wandering around so it was truly chance
Have you ever noticed that some photos are meant to happen and that you are just there to be the one who takes the shot?
Aye my best stuff comes from my wanderings – that is tough though as my full time job gets in the way lol
What divine colors…!
Yes thank you we get a lot of this subtle sky stuff
Oh, you’ve done it again, Scott.. I love this….
Such depth with quiet simplicity and delightful colours… Could be a water-colour…!
Now before you scoff, I would like to add – your images carry ‘balance’ as a part of their inherent structure… Not something all achieve..
balance? Carolyn expand please
Oh my, Scott… you are right there within grasp… Good day to you..!
Balance, Scott, as I view it is just that…! Your images can appear symmetrical or asymmetrical and maintain balance with all the elements of the image coming together to form a complete picture that allows the eye to ‘rest’, rather than (in some cases) to search for the element that will balance it. My eye (in the main) does not need to do that with your images. The colours blend (like a good artist), the eye rests, the mind comes to a rest as well.
It is the same with any piece of artistic endeavour. If one feels content; if the art allows a journey within that transcends the mundane; the image/art has done its job. Isn’t that the work of any artist, to allow the viewer to stop and partake of the ‘finer’ elements of human nature; such elements that can’t express themselves otherwise…!?!
Your good – learning as always
I have some good stuff in the pipeline stay tuned
But of course….
Gorgeous. I enjoy the gentle blues and pinks.
Hey thank you
Wow, this is beautiful – and a hint of snow on the hills behind. Perfect!
