Superb landscape shot.

I am hoping that this is one from last winter Ronnie because what hits you up there usually comes to us shortly afterwards and that is snow that I see! What the hell, we are off to Spain in a week and it won't matter for a fortnight.

This is very well composed Ronnie - I love the blue tinges in the snow.
I know this spot when we were at The Falls of Falloch, spotted these trees
but never had a chance to stop.
You wouldn't capture this from the road?
The choice of one larger tree as a subject was a good idea.

I like this but wonder whether it would be better with the dead tree trunk in the foreground cloned out? I find it a bit distracting. Think the image might look even better in black and white?
