Went for a walk up Cul Mor yesterday. Weather was lovely for walking, but not so good for photography - bright, bright sun with heavy shadows and so cold that I could hardly operate the shutter. It was -7 degrees on the way over there in the car and felt a lot colder as we got higher up the mountain.

Seriously considering leaving our camera gear behind next time and just enjoying the walk. Anyway, as I carried it this time, I was determined to find something to upload.

This shot was taken from about 2,000ft looking out towards Suilven. Quinag is just visibile in the distance on the right of the image. The heavy shadow in the middleground was caused by Cul Mor.

Thanks again to all those of you who have taken the time to vote and comment on my recent uploads.

lovely work Sue, it is good to see the landscape in all of the different moods, like you - I have to get a shot when the camera goes out, a few weeks ago I left mine behind so that I could just enjoy the day without always looking for a shot. It did make a change.

You are far off the beaten track here, Sue, but so glad you lugged your 40D up there.....it would have been a shame to have missed a record of this magnificent west Highland landscape..

Quintessentially Scottish. You're better at this geology in the landscape lark than I am.

Love the Rocks in the FG Sue, and the whole landscape. Very nicely composed, and captures the coldness of the Day and the height that the shot was taken from. I really like it. And yes, leave your Camera behind next time. ( But you'll regret it) Smile

Apart from small clumps of foliage in the fg , this looks like a very barren place. Would like the see the same image in the summer.

Quinag's a lovely formation..I would have liked to have had time to try getting to the top of it when I was there...

Thanks Fraser, trouble is that, unlike you, I havent got a clue what I'm looking at from a geological point of view, so any assistance with that would be much appreciated Smile

Lovely to see this view! You can normally see Christopher's crofthouse from here - and I would be able to if I could zoom in on it!
