    Glenn, thank you so much for these. I can feel my Scottish roots stirring as I look at these - especially your first. Can you tell us where you took these? Fantastic light shining down through the clouds and there's something about the moored boat with the red buoy that makes that first one more than "just" a beautiful scene. As corny as it sounds, it seems to anchor it and make it more real, to me, if that makes any sense to you.

    All are lovely - however your first and third are my two favorites.

    One and Four do it for me, a shaft of light shining on the building in one would have lifted it to the category of magical. Is it wishful thinking on my part to assume that that's a Golden Eagle in four at the very top just right of centre, or is it a Buzzard which I am familiar with?

    Thanks, pleased you like them. They were taken last week at the Onich Hotel, near Fort William, looking across Loch Linnhe. Onich is one of my regular haunts especially because of the magical scenery.

    Don't think it's an eagle, probably a buzzard
