Spectacular! It really is like a giant wave sweeping over the hill Dougie. It must have been some experience to see this - and quite cold! Smile superb image.

Well that was quick Ann, many thanks for your award. Cold it was, I had been out earlier for a sunrise that was flattened by the arrival of the snow, great waves of it. This was taken almost frommy front door, I had come back for some coffee to put life into my hands and feet.

That left hand cloud seems to be literally sweeping up the slopes: looks jolly cold up there already with a dusting on the tops.

That cloud looks as if it could be quite frightening Dougie. So well photographed and processed.

A beautiful capture of a glorious highland scene. Those towering clouds dwarfing even the majestic hills of this wonderful part of Scotland. The cottages lend scale, which makes this all the more impressive. I have fond memories of GlenTorridon and used to stay quite often on Old Neil Riley's bunkhouse at the foot of Liathach.

Yep, winter made its presence felt. We had snow and it iced up on the pavements - a sudden shock to the system! Nicely captured.

That is quite magnificent, Dougie. The big sky has such wonderfully sculpted clouds, a textural treat.
Now I need an extra pair of socks Wink

Great image avoiding the FG which lacks much interest and focussing on the drama in the skies. Superb and the dusting of snow on the hills really brings out the form despite flatter lighting. It's a lovely image.

Cheers Malc, it looked quite frightening as it rolled over the mountains which are quite large and sturdy. They vanishes and took the Loch with them while the storm blew over and then the sn came out again until the next giant wave.

The 5D 111 is a great camera I reckon an even better example that the mark 11, I always loved what I managed with the original 5D. A sad parting, I wonder where it is now???

Looks like there was a lot of movement in the air. Superb cloud formations, excellent sky above a lovely but cold landscape.
