Beinn A'Chrulaiste

By jamesgrant      
New Years Day 2017 saw me with a burst of energy and I decided I wanted to revisit Beinn A'Chrulaiste to capture the sunrise...Me and my girlfriend had attempted this nearly 3 years ago but all didn't go to plan due to deep and heavy snow combined with battering winds. We pitched a little up the mountain and didn't really get what we went for...So, fast forward 3 years and we made our second attempt. We set off on clear skies and all looked promising. A cold frost and dustings of snow were helping too...Unfortunately, as is often the case the clouds rolled in and blocked any chance of a sunrise...So to make the most of the day, we decided to head up to the summit to tick off the mountain...Fortunately, when we arrived at the top the clouds started to break and despite being nearly mid-day, the light coming through was pretty nice and allowed us to shoot the dramatic scenes over towards the Buckle.

Great shot of Buachaille Etive Mr, James. I like the hint of mist in the valley on the left which seems to accentuate the steep crags on the east side of the Buachaille.SmileSmileSmile

Wonderful view and an image with pp integrity- love it. Well done to you both for getting up there. I've turned back twice because of snow.
