...I've loved this view for many years but never managed to get the Ben (on left) in the picture before, cloud mostly has got in the way, but not today.
Red Deer can often be seen on the skyline by the central trees, distance safe from the paths that humans use.

***catch up later.

I have been there many times and never seen the summit yet, so thank you so much for sharing this.

Amazing view Dougie and glad it was a clear day to see the Ben, a well balanced image and I like the layer of dark clouds at the top too.

This is so different from the standard Bonny Scotland tourist image, it's almost a desert scene. Harsh, barren, everything sparse and thin even the trees. Impressive.

Lovely broad swath and swoop of skyline, Dougie - no wonder the deer appreciate it!

Well done on achieving your goal, Dougie: I like the banding effect here, the warm f/g with almost silhouetted conifers, the mountain mass, band of white sky above the snowline and finally that heavy grey overcast.
Looks exceptionally cold too.....hope you were wrapped up warm (as the weather forecasters sometimes advise)

Bleak and beautiful, Dougie. Lovely elements in this and one that seems very evocative of Many a cold day I've spent in Snowdonia.

It looks very remote: the barren moor and the snowy hills. Beautiful image Dougie.

Fine Rannoch image. Like the banding of dark clouds particularly.

the trees look quite miniscule (spelling) but guessing they would against the mountains, they do give perspective 2 size

A classic highland scene, with layers of interest pulling the eye and a strong focal point. I like!

I think the word I was looking for was "scale" not perspectiveWink

Oh yes, remember that day on the bridge looking at those trees.... No Ben to be seen... still wonderful memories.
You've captured not only the mountains, but also those crooked trees so well.
It snowed yesterday... all day, and now we have 20cm of fresh snow covering the landscape, heaps at the roadsides.
Though I love snow, I hope it doesn't stay for too long!
Take care my friend,
Johanna

A beautiful scenery, but I prefer the composition in the recent upload
