I wasn't going to post this image because I remember one from a very similar angle to this. However, it's probably the best photo I took while in Glen Coe in February.

About the pic, there is very little water coming from the small fall infront of me because the burn was frozen. The pool which dips out of the bottom of the frame also had a layer of ice underneath a thin film of water.

There is a larger image on my website @ Lawman's Place in the Scottish Highlands album.

There must be more photos of Buachaille Etive Mor on here than anything else but I particularly like the angle of this one. Nice to include the tree and small waterfall.

Superb photo from a terrific part of the world!

God this is superb Rich...the best quality shot of this imposing mountain I have seen...that wide lense has caught light and detail that I cannot achieve and the slow shutter has worked wonders with the water which was low when you visited. This has got to be in the exhibition department. Well done.
