An excellent composition with the primary focal point or point of interest being in the foreground. However your chosen aperture still allows one to fully appreciate this gorgeous setting to the full from front to back Dougie.

Gorgeous composition and detail Dougie. I love that lichen on the foreground rocks - all super stuff.
Following your comment about the Stac, although the atmosphere was incredibly clear last week, we didn't see Skye - maybe didn't try hard enough - but the Outer Hebrides were crystal clear and can be seen all along the coastal strip of Assynt. Through binoculars you could see the detail on the lighthouse at Stornoway!

Got a very similar image Dougie, the rocks here make a good foreground.

I had hoped for dramatic light on Skye but it was quite different Richard, Ord is a magical place, but then the whole Isle of Skye is wonderful.

I love a bold foreground Dougie and this works really well against that backdrop.

Many thanks for the time taken and the kind comments Johanna, I hope the bug is yielding to your treatment, and it's good to hear that you're a happy girl.

Tried to climb the Cuillin, many years ago. Too big for me: the rocks in the foreground of your image look much more within my capabilities Blush
Perhaps more truly atmospheric than a photograph taken in good light?
