Woke up early on Sunday and had a wee look out the back and noticed this...

The first one's really nice, the hint of mist gives it a lovely atmospheric quality.

Are you going to call #3 "crows & comets", or "birds & Boeings"? ;D

Thanks Brian, I think "Birds & Boeings" sounds good...  ;D

Very nice photos, Steven!  :)

Tell someone that you have two comets there (#3) (but turn them 90o clockwise before) :D

Great images Steven.  I agree with Brian, there's something VERY atmospheric about the first one. Not just the sky, but the play of light over the land to. Nice  :)

Lovely setting there Steve & well captured. I, too would have to give the nod to the first shot which has an atmospheric 'feel' to it. (http://www.mackenzie1963.freeserve.co.uk/Smilies/AMac's/fing02%5B1%5D.gif)
