...on Rannoch Moor, taken back in 2007 just found and processed in LR. The Black Mount was invisible in the mist which the processing cut through.

Beautiful mono landscape. I'll bet there are some legends attached to that stone.

How delighted I'd be if I came across such a forgotten shot on my hard drive, Dougie: amazing how sympathetic processing can reveal details that were not apparent at the time of shooting.
These large erratic boulders make such an interesting f/g and remind me of similar large chunks of rock that were dislodged by a landslide in Italy and one tore through a barn, and left an enormous scar in the fields.
These ones would have been carried and deposited here by glaciation.
Nice how white markings on them echo the snow covered mounts in the b/g.

Beautifully composed and processed, the distance revealed as almost Himalayan.

Beautifully composed, indeed. But I'm hearing 'Ha, show off! Size isn't everything, you know!' From the rock on the left, which seems to have its mouth open.
I have had nothing stronger than tea so far today...

Wonderful composition. "Himalayan" is not too far-fetched.

Well processed to find the mountain. Like the split stone. It reminds me of a frog with a feather on it's head.

The (presumably) yellow lichen on the fg boulder transforms perfectly to b&w, Dougie, adding a tonal contrast to add extra lift to the image.
Perhaps my imagination is running a bit wild, but the furthest rock looks like the head of a giant frog or toad...

Nice tones Dougie.
I am sure it would be splendid in colour,
but it does translate to the tones very well !!

Agreed, Malc. And one that's suffering from clinical depression.

Wish I was there; the sun is shining today but no prospect of snow at all in London! A beautiful Dougie!

A very strong composition Dougie leading the eye and giving the image depth. Works extremely well in B&W.

It looks cold. Which it probably was.
Lots of detail in those rocks, nice layer of mist at the back.
Brrrrr.... cracking image of a cracking cold scene. Smile

The faintness of the distant hills adds great depth and dimension to the scene, supplementing a fine study of classic Scottish geology.

It does look like a giant frog! I'd have never noticed... Love the composition and the mountains through the mist. I can't imagine this in colour as the mono works so well.
