Taken once again back in 2010 on the road to Elgol in the Isle of Skye. A wild wet and windy day (not unusual for Skye) the low cloud covered the mountains within 5 minutes after this shot. Going back to Skye at the end of next week for a few days, it will be interesting to see what the weather brings this time. My thanks once again to everyone for your comments and kind words on my previous images, they are always very much appreciated. Bill.

Lots of depth again, Bill. Great clarity and light in the foreground with a touch of colour in the heather, and the cloud on the hills is wonderfully moody. Excellent image... and more to come in a couple of weeks... hopefully Smile

This is truly and extremely beautiful shot! I love the juxtaposition and contrast of the definite clarity of the foreground with the indefinite portentous blur of the background so much.SmileSmileSmileSmileSmileSmileSmileSmileSmileSmile

Hello Bill, I feel I know almost exactly where this was taken – I will upload a shot from this area tomorrow for you to see  I like this image with its strong lead-in. The clouds over the mountains are superb, seemingly streaming off the peaks and I really like the colourful heather centre left.
But I ask myself whether you had some soft sunshine on the foreground or whether you have lightened it in post-processing. The reason is that the stream area looks rather too light compared to the foliage – I would have expected them to be a bit closer in tonal value. Have you tried to have the foliage a bit lighter (only a bit…), but the foreground a bit darker? That will help to guide the eye into the picture. At the moment, I stop almost as soon as I see the foreground, then leap across the darker foliage to the mountains. Regards, Adam

Adam, many thanks for your comments,with regard to the image, the lighting was natural here with some light hight ling the foreground area, very little post processing was done as I try to keep my images as close to the natural way in which it was shot. My thanks once again for your time to view and for your interest, I appreciate your advice, Bill.

Great perspective Bill. Love the way the misty clouds contrast with the sharp detail of the stones in the stream.

A landscape so totally evocative of the Skye scene: portrait format working well for you, excellent lead in and great use of full DOF.
What I also like is the warm brighter conditions in the f/g and the progressive dulling into the distance with the cloud cover well down over the summits.
Ronnie.

Beautiful little stream and heather in the foreground with a stony path leading you into the composition of the low cloud on the mountains, it's superb work Bill.
