...one that was never shown before, I thought a break from b&w would be good today.
The snow clouds tumbling down across Beinn Alligin.
Wonderful textures in those swirling clouds, like billowing chiffon.
Those clouds are magnificent. I would be tempted to crop the base more to concentrate on them.
Oooooo....cracking shot !!!......those clouds look sooooo powerful ?....looks like you were on the right side of the loch !!!!.
brilliant tones and textures dougie in those wonderful clouds a cracker nice one
It's always interesting to read others' comments and suggestions, Dougie.
After reading Ivor's suggestion I held a card over the lower part of the scene, but a crop as suggested did not work for me.
Whilst the wispy clouds make a significant contribution to the shot, it's the layering effect that makes this image work........lightish clouds, deep shadow over distant mountains, sunlight falling on the snow capped Beinn Alligin and then the sombre conifers in the shady f/g.
So for me, it's just perfect as shown.
Shall return later to see if any further comments are made re. this.
Sorry to be so long winded.
What amazing clouds. A very nice image.
The contrast between light and dark over the mountain tops is almost apocalyptic.
Can see it coming Dougie !!!! moment of weather change !!
The sky is the main player here, it's spectacular, brooding and holds lots of interest. The snow topped peaks are also important for scale and beauty but as Ronnie says, without the FG, especially the grass stalks, it would lose a lot of depth so I think you've cropped correctly. The only other option would be to retain the original 3x2 format which might give more sky while retaining the currently visible ground. You've got a great knack of finding this kind of spectacular light and showing it off so well.
For me the image is perfect - I love to see the old Scots Pines and if it was cropped, they would disappear. Those clouds are so atmospheric - a grand image Dougie!
Magnificent imagery, beautifully composed and exposed
This is breathtaking. Awesome light.
Did you have your raincoat and thermals Dougie?
A great shot of atmosphere
Like the light and that fine sky to balance a good comp, well worked Dougie
Great bands of contrast, be it colour, texture or mood.
As wonderful as can be! Brilliance, beautiful colours and and excellent sky. After all the mono images I am happy to see some colours in your world again Dougie.
Thanks for the Christmas card.
That's a majestic image, Dougie with lovely light and great impact.
Stupendous sky. I'll join the crop debate - works for me but is a white dot on lower edge I'd clone as draws the eye. Otherwise one for the wall.
The clouds and mountain details are magnificent.
