...on Buachaille Etive Mor, stopped to have my soup to warm my hands as well as my stomach, this find, warmed my heart too.
They're just left of centre standing alongside eachother atop a small ridge.

Well - he is the "Mor", the big one, well shown with this image. I think it shows just how small we humans are in this splendid world and how unimportant... although we can do such huge damage to our world!
Excellent image, and good to see the little frame with the zoomed in peak!

Marvellously detailed shot of the summit, Dougie. I would, of course, never have spotted the figures without your pointing them out.

Fabulous detail Dougie. The Buachaille is justly celebrated for its beauty; it is also a magnet for climbers: they must be mad.
The climber on the left is trying to attract Danny's attention; he's probably after his sandwich.

Great spot there!
And it gives you a great sense of scale of how big this beautiful mountain is, no wonder it got voted the top ten in the world for greatest views. Its an amazing place and can't wait to get up there in 2 weeks time.

Brilliant Dougie for the light and tones, you would have got my user award for this if I hadn't given it out this week.

You should have made us search for the climbers though and posted the insert as a version ....... Wink

Great shot Dougie! Love the inset too which works really nicely in that it provides the detail and applies a geometric contrast to the chaos of the mountain. Terrific work!

Great mono with the added interest of the climbers highlighted in the inset.
I would guess their movement brought the to your attention, its surprising how we stand out even in these great vista.

Good detail and light Dougie, it suits the mono treatment. You must have been a hawk in a previous life with this great spot. I saw 2 climbers on this one night over Christmas, well I saw 2 torchlights anyway.

Wonderful mountain photograph - shows Stob Dearg in all its menacing glory. I love the elimination of all but the top 1000 feet or so - concentrates wholly and purely on the features of the hill.

Personally I would have waited until the climbers reached the intersection of the thirds - I assume you were in a hurry Dougie ?!

Excellent, Ian.
