Rock & the Glen

Glen Turret near Crieff in Scotland, I used to live less than 3 miles from this magical place. This is also the water source of one of my fav whisky's Glen Turret.

All the best. mal

Now I know the reason of your attachement to this lake. You have the same liquid running through your veins. smile You and the lake are relatives by blood. ha-ha.
Classic shot, mal. Can't go wrong with stuff like this.

Must be some water if the rocks can float on top of it like thissmile This is a beautiful shot. The rocks look a little arranged to me which adds a dimension of contrast.
You do this better than anyone, Mal: this is a fine piece of work. I have bourbon in my blood this night: wish it was single malt in sympathy with this...smile

Beautiful Mal. Oh and so is the photo.
What an incredible shot. You've got an impressive photoblog. All your photos have a surreal quality. Really nice!

I wish I had known about that whiskey when we were there a couple years ago, Mal. I would have tasted it just for you! I'm sure it's as heavenly as this place.
Looks like a lake of milk and a sky of whipped cream. Perhaps this area of Scotland has dairy cows rather than sheep?

So that is how the scots produce all their great whiskey's ... they drink some of this murky water and pass it through the system (VZ's inference) smile

Great picture with mystical qualities. Sit up your feet at the fire and have a wee one tongue
Looks like scotch mist to me ;o) The stones look a lot more magical than the stone circle we visited yesterday ;o)
great photograph! I like the soft tones and lonely feel to it. I would love to see its colour too

This reminds me of 'the anchor' which you uploaded a little while ago. Similar misty, mystical effects over the water. How do you do this? Or is it just good fortune?

Damn! Got totally off-track when you mentioned the use that is made of the water!
I didn't drink whiskey until I came to Thailand...soon converted when I discovered red wines are 5-10times as expensive in Thailand as Australia.
My favourite is Talisker, so long as no-one tries polluting it with mixers; if mixers are being splashed about, though, I like Jamieson best, and that comes Dublin which I think might be Southern Scotland...

Mal, this is just such a classically beautiful photograph. If Glen Turret whiskey is anything like this place, I say we should all take a sip or 10 smile
I love the feelings that cause some magical places of Scotland like this that You immortalized ... And also love whisky Scots smile
You have turned this into an art form ..
Oh you git, you never told me you lived so near my favorite distiller !!! Don't know if I should even talk to you any more sad Just joking smile This shot does the area justice as always from you.

Hi Mal. I found your blog just by clicking search random photoblog, it's pot luck. But without it, I would never have found your stunning portfolio. I can't really add anything that hasn't been said already. Great shot and wonderful gallery.
