Wow, stunning panorama. Can't see the join! Great shot Alan.
(Did you continue along the ridge? I have never got round to it, there's always been some reason not to!)

Lovely image - I would not have known it was two photos merged if you'd not said. Excellent.

Thanks folks.

George, yes we did the whole Ring of Steall and it was stunning. We had just walked up the ridge in the centre of the photo and then went to the left to complete the circuit.

I really gat back my head for heights that day especially on the Devil's Ridge near the end. For the non walkers that's a 1m wide ridge with a few hundred metres off each side:-( Not one for a windy day! I was OK at the time, but I've since seen it on the way up Am Bodach and it looks much worse from below!

Brilliant Alan. The mention of Steall brought back a nasty memory of crossing the wire bridge by the Cottage when the rope suddenly twisted and trapped part of my hand in the wires.

George,

Thanks for the kind comments.
I chickened out on the rope bridge and went upstreamm a few tens yards and forded the stream. My mate crossed the bridge, but wished he hadden't. He was gripping so tightly the rust marks were still there the next day. Still I got some pickies of him mid-bridge having got over first. Don't know what I'd have done if the water had been deeper! I want to go back with mono and do that fantastic gorge at the top of Glen Nevis.

Really nice shot and I just love the lighting on this image. The way the clouds form the shadows on the distant mountains is great.
