Another from the New Year trip to the Highlands. Whilst at the usual Buachaille vantage point I could see a green object protruding from the snow, I wasn't expecting it to be a tent but I suppose if you've got the correct gear it would be fabulous experience. I thought it apt to post it now after seeing Dougie's (Scottishlandscapes) offering of the two climbers on the mountain.Smile
Pleasee view LARGE if time allows.

P.S. When we got back to the car ten minutes later, it was reading -11 on the car temp guage. We wisely retreated to the Clachaig Inn for Venison caserole.Smile

Wonderful, I have a Quasar tent like that - but it certainly wasn't me in it - though I wish it was.

I really like the remoteness of these campers: Snow camping is great fun. But I feel that something has been lost in the shot because the snow is a bit underexposed.

It is a common thing to happen when exposing for a predominantly bright scene (e.g. sand dunes, snow fields, bright architectural shots). The camera's sensor expects a certain amount of tonal variety in a scene (I can't remember for sure - but I think that the sensor expect the average of the whole scene to be 18% gray (someone can correct me on this)) and therefore underexposes to compensate as it believes that there should be a greater range.

By forcing overexposure, the shot the snow would be brighter and it would mean that the tent would stand out more, which I thing would benefit the drama in the picture.

Hope you don't mind the comment Sean. Still a great shot and the previous one was full of drama too!

Thanks John for that, I think I rushed it and I'm very glad you pointed it out. Variant to follow.
