    Ross Priory

    Ross Priory is owned by the University of Strathclyde and is on the shores of Loch Lomond, about 30 minutes drive from Glasgow. There is a cottage in the grounds of the estate that can be rented (this isn't it!) and we spend a weekend there each year. Just got back today!

    Very tranquil with the evening light. I'm assuming it was evening light with the floodlights on. I like the composition too.

    Oh. Basically, what I wanted to say is what Rob said. It has a very peaceful, cool of the evening feel. The arches at the entrance look very warm and inviting. confession: this may, might, maybe have more emotion to it (which I expect from you, you know) than the bluebells.

    Hi Mr Donald
    Thanks to you I am now sadly twisted. You have inculcated in me a need to look for a 'story'within every picture!
    And in your post above I see "Tranquility."
    Great shot which I like very much. Oh, and, don't worry about the problem you have caused... I will get some tablets.... or seek professional help.. meantime I get so much more out of enjoying the posts on this site ...

    You have wonderfully captured the atmosphere of the scenery, Donald. Your landscape images in b&w are really stunning.

    Beautiful capture, Donald. I really like the contrast between the floodlit and dark parts of the building. Did it get cloudy later that night?

    Thank you for your comments

    Abhi - you are very accurate in weather-forecasting. It did indeed get very cloudy ... and wet. I got out the following morning at about 6am, but had to keep hiding under some of these trees in order to keep me and my gear dry (the storm jacket for the camera that I bought last year worked very well). But after 9am it rained steadily for 12 hours.

    Hehe, I just got lucky there. Your photo gave me a sense of not just tranquility, but a calm before/after the storm with the dark clouds building up/receding in the background. Hence the guess
