An Lochan Uaine: The Green Lochan in Glen More, Cairngorm National Park. So called because the waters have a very clear green colour... not in evidence on Sunday when I took this photo because it was frozen over. The lochan itself is hard to get a good image from and so I climbed the heather and scree to see down the glen. There was an RAF rescue sea king helecopter buzzing about but happily not when I took this. It's 3 bracketed shots, each edited in Capture One and then blended in PSE to capture the tonal range which was difficult using filters alone due to the bright foreground but darker midground.
I also snapped some more ice on Loch Morlich which I'll inflict on you later in the week Wink

Cheers Jeremy and I hadn't even posted it in the gallery yet! It didn't get above - 2C all day and was colder in the hills. It's - 6C as I type this now... Grin

Yep, works very well. I particularly like how the mountains slowly disappear into mistyness.

The HDR looks very natural, Al. The composition is spot on with the 'flow' down the glen with strong diagonals, and the restricted colour range looks very good, especially with the sunlight catching and warming some of the greens.

Worth the climb as it shows off the Lochan in it's geographical setting: have seen this stretch of water from 'ground level' only before so this view is most refreshing.

Looks like an ambition climb, but well rewarded with this gorgeous scene.

Thank you Ronnie and Joline; the climb was steep but not too bad through the heather. It was the icy boulders that were treacherous!

Cheers Kel. No kids, no dog, just the usual time pressures to be home to have lunch with Josie... I was late back! Wink
