A very similar composition as my first Guardians image but it was always a toss up which one I prefered. I like the sky better in this one but maybe the light is better in the first one??

A magnificent mountain landscape with great lighting and colour. Most views around Glencoe are taken from much lower levels, but you have pushed hard to get this high up, and given us a totally different perspective of the area. Superb work, and very much appreciated, John.

That really is an image to knock socks off! I think the term 'Wow' is often over used, but this is a real jaw dropper.

I have to say that in an area of the country that is well covered and has produced some amazing photography, your work John must rate amongst some of the best.

That is a beautiful picture and one that would make a great painting (if you painted out the road Smile ) A breath taking scene.

This one is amazing! I like the way the road, and what appears to be a stream meander through the landscape. A gorgeous shot!

Loved the original and love this too. I like the composition in this as it has a bit more depth but I actually prefer the sky in the previous version as it seems to add a bit more drama. Both truly stunning and I don't think I could pick between them either. Gets my award Smile

PS. Bet it's looking magnificent up there at the moment with all this snow about Wink

Thank you all, appreciated.

Den, I'm going back up at the weekend so may have a look at this again in the snow but I still have a few more vantage points I want to investigate.

John this is the bees mate. Yes the sky is great but I love the whole atmosphere. The composition is great and Im very envious of you going there. The road gives it great scale and I remeber being very impressed seeing it on 1x.com.

Awesome.

From the wonderful sky to the great detailed and colourfyl fg, an image packed with delight for the viewer. The A82 curves it's way urgently through the glen while The Coupall River meanders slowy around the Buchle and round into Glen Etive.
You've really captured the mood of the mountains here at the bend in Rannoch Moor.
