Well spotted, I should have seen that. The sun was just out of shot to the upper left and I have to come even cleaner about this shot now. I did not plan it at all. The road close to the loch is being upgraded and rerouted and I was waiting for the temporary traffic control to change from 'STOP' to 'GO'. I could see things were going to change soon and as I wrestled the camera out its bag, the lens hood fell off, which could have been the cause of the flare.
Lovely photos Alf. I have the same here, the sun sets behind the hill I am on which is 652m high. And at this time of year the sunrise just lights up the hills(Munros) to which I am blessed to look out on. Do get beautiful skies though. Later in the year the sun comes up between two of the mountains which is gorgeous.
