"These two shots show the view south along the edge of Loch Indaal, looking towards the many buildings that line the seafront at Port Charlotte. Here, the white-washed walls of the houses pick up the pinkish glow of the first rays of sunlight at sunrise. The calm waters of the loch have helped to create a peaceful feel to the overall scene, allowing a faint reflection of the illuminated shore side buildings to appear. The main image and thumbnail were taken from the same position a few seconds apart; the only difference between them was the amount of rotation of the polarising filter that I used. I preferred the effect when the sky was darkened the most as shown in the main image."
