Below : A long exposure of almost one minute (courtesy of a Lee 10 stop ND filter) has artificially blurred the cloud and the surface of the loch, providing an artificial sense of calm on a stormy day. Aautumn colours glow on the hillside. After torrential rain, Loch Assynt is unusually high, creating an island for the castle.
