Alpine Glow Marsco

By hwatt  
Sligachan, Skye, Scotland

A gorgeous rich rust red alpine glow is left flaming the top of Marsco in the cirque of Sligachan's Cuillins peaks. The breathlessly still conditions in late Autumn sunlight permit some superb reflections through which yellow reeds and grasses protrude. I wait for the last vestiges of colour to tinge the slopes and the pinkening sky above before taking one of my favourite shots of this fine location.

Lovely sedate composition and reflection, the soft lighting makes this shot. James Smile
