Taken back at Easter on my trip to Skye.

Not sure if this photo actually does the scene presented to you as you crest the rise and begin the descent to Glen Brittle any justice.

I've been in and around mountains all my life but on first view of this I was genuinely in awe.

Thanks for looking.

Oh it's good alright my friend, must have been well into the day to get the light round far enough to illuminate wee spur, which always hides.
Grand time on Skye, that's what I like to hear.

All the very best

Thanks all,
Conrad, I think it's one of them cases where the camera just can't portray the impact and massive scale of things, obviously accentuated by the fact it was the first time I had seen this scene.
Pleased with the snap though.

Cracking shot.

I know what you mean. I found that a wide angle shot from the car park just down from there somewhat diminished the impressiveness of the corrie. It's one time when the peripheral detail that the lens supplies really doesn't help in conveying the sense of place. The great slab of the flank of Sgurr Thuilm retreats far too quickly rather than dominates the way it does when seen with the eye. I'm not sure what the answer is. I suspect that a more representative sense of scale might be delivered by a detail shot but perhaps but like many viewpoints, unless you've been there and seen it you can't tell any different. Only the artist, as they say, can see the problem.

John, I was wondering whether one solution might be to crop the bottom off the shot and make a double aspect pic out of the top part, allowing the coire to dominate ?

Another way is to take 2 or 3 portrait orientation shots zoomed in then stitch together, theres always the transform tool as well to pull the top corners up and out, neither of these I use as I prefer a quick workflow so have to make do with what the camera see I guess.

It's not often I'm stopped dead in my tracks but this was a totally surprising view for me, a few choice expletives were uttered, partly for the scenery and partly for the unfolding photographic opportunities to be had.

Cheers

Well its a wonderful mountain scene in lovely light, I'm none too keen on the road, but then again they always provide a quick and easy lead in.
And congrats for the EC.

Neil, I understand what you say about the road. I think I have another in a Wasdale shot but generally I don't use them. In this location I had others with a burn lead in and a fence lead in but in the end plumped for the road as I thought it combined the best overall balance. I must have been drawn to this particular shot as I deleted all the other comps and just had this left on the hard drive unprocessed until now.
