...took several days and several visits to figure when the sun hit this mountain, the interesting side faces north west, it was about 4pm at this time of day that got interesting.

Love this landscape and I'm glad your persistence paid off Dougie. The light is so soft and clear!

Persistence pays off Dougie. A fine shot indeed, but you'll not have the northern side in sunshine for a wee while nowSmile

Worth the visits, the light is subtle, the shadows give the contours.

Lovely light on the hill giving good modelling and as Chris says, texture too. The islands help your eye hop across the water to the focal point of the mountain.

Isn't this the mountain that the dreaded Jeremy Clarkson drove up in a Land Rover? Sad

As far as I can find out it was Ben Tongue a much smaller and lesser mountain than Ben Loyal.

Finally Runrig's Summer Walkers is in the net. I think I've mentioned it several times. Hope you like the song as much as I like this image. Simply stunning - clear as a bell and sharp as a pin. Love it!
