The B and W presentation will have brought out the stratified detail that much the better I'd guess, Dougie: that's a nice bit of brightness catching in the centre of the mountain's flank. amidst the otherwise shady scene.

I find myself looking for a mountain climber, man or goat. Such fine detail, especially in the lit up areas. ......Sandy

Not bad for a beginner..........Just a enough hint of those clouds to settle the whole thing down.

I think it can be quite difficult to take a B&W landscape sometimes, but this one is gorgeous! I love the highlight right down the middle

A stern, forbidding mountainside relieved by welcome patches of light on a pleasantly rotund centre.
Hope that doesn't sound too much like my self-portrait Tongue

I like the dappled lighting, and the details brought out in the highlighted areas Dougie.

That's a serious rock face - not a blade of grass anywhere (as far as I can see). Mighty and magnificent!

Like the use of mono for this Dougie, the light has brought out the details in the rock well

Beautiful, perfectly judged image. Marvellously subtle light in that top right quadrant. Sheer good taste.

Missed this one ?????

Great shot !!......lovely sense of immense bulk & majesty !!!

I always fancied climbing this beauty, years back, but never got round to it.....did Bheinn Eighe though, next to it !!!
Alas advancing years, aching joints, etc., have put paid to any such ideas for the future......SadSmile
