Great patchy FG lighting and also picking out the snowy mountainside. The house is crucial for demonstrating size and communicating isolation (well, it is a bit of a schlepp to get there!). Love the misty mystery on the mountain top and the contrast between the white and the warm browns in the FG. The banding of brown white and blue is very nicely proportioned in thirds and suits the landscape framing. A stunner! Smile

Lovely contrast in color and tones - and Al's right - the house really does show the scale of the mountains.

Great shot. I climbed this mountain nearly 10 years ago. I'm off to Skye in about 6 weeks and hope I have some light like this.

You do get about a bit - its an impressive looking place, and the house adds a sense of scale and isolation.

Nicely done!

Now this one does make me smile. What a cracker.... Not least because I climbed this great mountain as a teenager some twenty something years ago and although there wasn't any snow, the cloud was just the same with the peak just poking through.... Thank you for a lovely reminder and a stunning image!!
