When I arrived here yesterday another photographer was already in position and had been for an hour already. Three other photographers came, waited for the sun to break out from behind the black cloud that seemed determined to spoil our venture out, gave up & left..... but the light eventually came and boy it was worth standing in the freezing, biting strong winds for 2 hours. The other initial stubborn photographer and I were like kids at Christmas .... Took a while to warm up again though later on!

Ha well done! Patience is a virtue... Wink Well worth the wait to illuminate such a great comp with the run in to the boulder and the snowy peaks behind with their seemingly matching clouds. Just lovely! Smile

You obviously suffered for your art and it paid of with the light and the sprinkling of snow on the tops, I almost wish we still lived up there, but retreated to the south some years ago.

You have done particularly well to preserve the gorgeous light and still hold the detail in the foreground grass Jeanie. No surprise to see how well this has done.
