While on the way up to the Isle of Skye I passed a beautiful mountain in Glencoe. It was so nice I had to stop and take a photo. I can't believe no ePHOTOzine member has spotted this mountain before. It really is spectacular and a hidden secret Wink

I looked for the tripod hole shot with gushing water but there wasn't even a trickle so I found an alternative view.

Given the deep blues of the sky and the rich greens, you could have fooled folk into thinking it was from some tropical island in the Caribbean, not Skye.....Good stuff mate.

The water was almost stopped when I passed through here just last week, another beautiful image from this magical spot.

Beautiful, love the shutter speed control just slow enough to blur the water but fast to keep the clouds as they should be SmileExcellent work Pete!

So you finally made it up there!

With those colours and a different angle it demonstrates very clearly that even with a location as ridiculously frequently shot as this one (speaking as one of repeat offenders) you can still get something individual.
