Shot shortly after my last upload. A little more height and time for the sun to burn off the mist opened up the view to Abernethy fromm Glen More where I was. The shadow play was great and I wanted to try to encapsulate the vista rather than going for a tighter comp and the sky and foreground were not forthcoming with interest... maybe I've been reading Waiting for the Light too much! Next upload won't be a panorama, promise!

A gorgeous and well composed landscape. The light and mist are beautiful - as you say, the shadows providing a lot of atmosphere.

Lovely light and shade, Al. A good panoramic crop although the missing top of the tree keeps grabbing my attention. I do like the tree silhouettes on the skyline as well. A slightly less than usual composition which works very well.

An interesting 'crop', Alan, the letter box format concentrating the eye on the sunlit trees sitting on the diagonal, and as Dave mentioned a nice balance of light and shade.
I was not so sure when I first viewed the image but the more I look the more I like what you have done here and appreciate your planning. Has worked very well.
Ronnie.

Hi Alan love the light in this shot and the way the shadows and undulations draw you in and lead you through the vista,the panoramic crop works really well,although as Dave pointed out that the missing tree top is a little distracting i think the only way this could have been resolved would have been to include more blue sky which wouldn't have worked
