Splendid, just perfect in every way.        This is indeed one of the most beautiful photos I've seen.           Dusk's special light lends a pure, magical quality, so inviting.      Beautiful Scotland!

One of my fave subjects done in such superlative fashion.  Wow.  Love the perspective, the light, the lighthouse and the shadow as well as the sea and all else. What a wonderful composition.  Thanks so much for sharing this. Cheers.

What a wonderful picture and I can well imagine what a person must have thought 100 years ago standing at this spot looking out into the seas of what might lie beyond the horizon!
