Hi all, last shot from Saturday. I spent to long on the moor and by the time I had walked up the study the sun was trying to be unforgiving with its shadows. I think this shot might be better done later in the day in the soft light of evening. I did say that there was a blanket of mist rolling up and down the glen. It was a lovely walk in the morning sun, and I sat there for an hour just watching the world go by.

Thanks again for all those great comments and awards this week........having a little brake from being on the road this weekend but have a great one.

Paul.

No matter what time of day or conditions, I don't see this being improved on all that much: so well composed and so atmospheric with that low cloud casting shadows in a broad band across the middle distance.
I am wondering if that is JS's former house on the bend?

Beautifully atmospheric, one can almost feel the charged atmosphere in this beautifully composed and captured landscape with immediate interest and then the drama as it unfolds in the distance. Superb light and depth.

Sorry Paul, I really have to disagree with you; this is a cracker of a shot, it is full of drama and atmosphere. It is well composed and the light at the end of the tunnel really draws the eye.

Agree with Ronnie and Tish - this wonderfully atmospheric and couldn't have been bettered at any time.
Very dark Glencoe feeling which you often get driving through here - you're reminded of tit's history.
the light in the dip in the mountain mirrors the rock in the f/g.
Another winner I think Paul.

Excellent composition Paul. The sun on the foreground and distant mountains contrasting with the shadowed mid ground and dark sky helps lead the eye through the image beautifully.

Your trademark beautiful natural colours and there's great depth and flow to the shot , I love that touch of light above the cloud highlighting that patch of snow on the peaks reminding the viewer of their dominance in the scene , love it , really well composed
