A mountaineer making his approach to the summit of Ben Challum on 31/12/08.
A fantasic way to end the years mounain climbing was to be there when the temperature inversion was around and the clouds were lower then the mountain tops.

On the left side of the image you can see Ben More & Stob Binnein, and to the right is Ben Lui. In the centre of the image is the lower Munro top of Ben Challum with the climber approaching the main summit of Ben Challum.

Thanks for all your comments and votes and please help me out with more comments on my images.

I wonder if people will pass this one by because the thumbnail doesn't look like much. However, the full sized pano is fantastic. The distant peaks poking through the clouds are superb and it must have been a wonderful place to have been for the day. However, what really makes this outstanding is the single figure which lends everything a sense of scale.

It is a beauty of a shot R.
Really catches that mountain atmosphere so well.

One wee sugestion, ... Your pano shots are great and well stiched but if you try taking all the shots upright, (portrait format), then you will get better balanced panoramics with more foreground!

Keep em coming!!! Smile

Cheers Scott, that is something that I have been doing on occassions, however now you have mentioned it I think I will take the shots in portrait format all the time.
Thats great feedback that you have gave me. Thanks and take care. All the best.

Another super capture, Richie. As Flyingseale above says

It really does need to be viewed large to fully appreciate the beauty of the image.

The thumb version does not do it justice, must view large for sure. Fantastic capture
