Sorry not been about much, lots of family stuff on over the next few weeks. A dramatic mono conversion looking back towards the road by black rock cottage and on to rannoch moor. The drama of this shot is the way I am very much feeling this week. After 23 years I have moved jobs, starting on Monday. The most amazing opertunity came my way. Sad and happy all in one.

This one is for Bill, I will miss our lunchtime chats about photography. So thanks Bill for opening my eyes to life through the Lens..........

Dark and dramatic, Paul. The foreground rock is just a tad too prominent but a lovely moody image. Congrats on the job.

It is so dramatic, the B and W presentation adding to the effect and working so well b/o the high contrast range.

A very dramatic view of Rannock Moor.
I hope you didn't get caught in a downpour after
taking this image! Lovely light striking the f/g rock and grasses.

P.S. Good luck with new job.

Dark and moody conversion, Paul. I like the light in the arc of the mountain and that's quite an apocalyptic sky. I agree that the fg rock may be a tiny bit too prominent within the overall balance of the composition.

Sorry, If you know me well, there is 2 things that you would pic up on straight away. One have never been any good at spelling and two and bill will confirm this, I very much need glasses...........this bits for kate, so right about rain. Had to run for cover in the car, nice cup of tea though.

Paul.

Hey! that's a great mono shot I like the rock in the foreground ruggedly standing out against the dark mountain in the background, and the dreaded sky over head, a big like from me, good luck in your new job Paul, regards Leon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

Paul I can understand the way that you feel, especially when looking at this image of the Glen, The dark sky reflects something in your past that is better forgotten, and the bright part of the sky is something that you can look forward to and be successful in once again. Your friendship over the past few years has been memorable, and once again I would like to wish you every success in your new job. I know you will keep in touch and look forward to our next outing with the cameras. Take care my friend, Bill.

How dramatic is this?! Wonderful. Darkly moody with great curvey lines and brill touches of light catching the scene.
