Beinn Dearg

By JohnParminter  
There are many hills in Scotland called Beinn Dearg, it means red peak or red hill, this is a lesser known one tucked away from view behind the more famous Torridon icons of Liathach, Beinn Alligin and Beinn Eighe.

Being 914m or a shade under 3000ft it is also overlooked somewhat by walkers that are intent only on climbing hills of 3000ft Munro status.

I am also negligent in my ascent of this fine hill but hope to put that right one day as I believe there are fabulous views to had from it's summit. In the meantime I am content to photograph it from the waters of Coire Mhic Nobuil.

I like your viewpoint and the light and shade in this John. I hope the views turn out to be as good as you suspect they will be.

Nice side lighting on the foreground rocks with the dark almost foreboding mountain in the distance.
A very fine image John.

Very carefully chosen viewpoint to make the most of that interesting f/g, John, and a fine composition overall.

You ceratainly get around Scotland a lot for a Sassenach, John. You've produced some excellent images recently with lots of exposure (of the vertical kind). Ventured up into Fisherfield on wednesday. Great country I haven't explored before but no photos of any note as clear blue skies turned very quickly into leaden clouds at sunrise and sunset times. I will go back there soon though.

Cheers Paul, aye Fisherfield is definately worth a trip in decent weather, I was very lucky on my only trip into that area. The view from A' Mhaighdean on a good day is certainly recommended.
