I spent four out of five days in Glencoe in the rain with nothing to inspire me. I returned to this spot everyday and on the morning of my departure nature gave me a break Smile Thanks for looking.

You are an undoubted master of landscape photography, Alun, and I'm so glad the weather bucked up for you before heading home, allowing you to capture this beautifully composed and balanced shot with such detailed and interesting f/g.
And I like the way the outline of the river bed echoes the shape of the Great Shepherd.

Very impressive composition. The view straight down the river has enhanced the feeling of depth. I like the detail and light on the rocks that you have selected for the foreground. Your perseverance has certainly paid off.
I shall have to have a scout around for this position next time I visit!
Very well done.

I had intended driving home at 5.30 am but I'm glad I stayed around. Thanks for the positive feedback. Plenty of stuff to process now. I took all the tourist shots but wanted to get a different view and concentrated therefore on Stob a Ghlais Choire rather than Stob Dearg.
Cheers

Mother Nature often rewards the patience of people, and this sight must have raised your spirits and filled your heart with delight. A place I've wandered like you wishing the light would do something and the clouds would break, just a little.
Beautiful uplifting image from the side of The Buachaille, one that will stay with you for some time and I'm sure there will be more to come too.

Tomasz - I was very lucky!
Dougie - many thanks. Glencoe is a wonderful place. The colours in the riverbeds are truly striking and in this instance I was like a kid in a sweetshop. I don't think I'd survive the summer midges so it looks like a return visit next Easter!
