...perched above a drop down onto the road a couple of hundred feet below I reckon. It's horrible feeling when the seat of your pants start sliding across the grass here.

I clocked this vantage point when I went for a run along the path and up onto the tops, one to be noted when I go back.
BTW Dougie, have you shots of or aware of any great images of the 'Table' between the pinnacles and the summit ridge? It really is a geological masterpiece that deserves a bit of photographic attention, another one to add to my wee list.

Oh, you should have slipped a bit further down on your a*se, then maybe you wouldn't have obscured the wee lochs by the tree.....Wink

hehe

I'm wondering which would be worse, being inside them at the time or watching them slide off on their own...
Sorry...

A particularly fine example of the tree that will cling on to almost any surface. A bit like the seat of the pants, but slower acting!

Wonderful view, wonderful colours and a superb perspective.

Best so far Dougie from this trip. I don't mind the tree cutting out the loch as in this light it wasn't doing much and I like the road included from this angle - adds a fine curve.

Hope the seat and the pants have recovered.

Fabulous image Dougie and right now I an really envious of you getting this view...it was no1 on my list of places I wanted to photography but after 2 visits (sunrise/sunset) I had to give up and move on because the mist just lingered...

Stunning....if for no other place I would like to return to view this place!!
