Beautiful Glencoe on a late autumn afternoon, brooding snow-laden clouds blowing in from the west, yet the sunshine still manages to break through and illuminate part of the ridge in the distance.

Forgive me for not cloning out the A82 - but it exists and I think it would be wrong to try to remove it. I have left a couple of special friends also left in down the path there, giving a sense of scale to this beautiful area. Smile.

Gorgeous autumn colours, Jeanie, contrasting so well with the darkness of those impressive peaks.

A really lovely shot Jeanie. Wonderful scenery.
I personally think the road is such an integral part of this shot too as it snakes its way through the valley toward Glencoe village from Rannoch Moor.
Well done.

A beautifully composed and balanced landscape with excellent detail and colour rendering. I totally agree that the road should be left - it is part of the scene and the image would suffer were it to be removed. Your inclusion of the two small figures does however add to the sense of scale and I quite like seeing that human interest element in landscape for that reason alone. I don't think you could have improved on this shot - to my mind it is perfect.
Ronnie.

It's a grand view from this path Jeanie, tests the legs and lungs getting here but well worth it. You got some nice light and shade along the glen and the sisters are hanging onto some cloud.
