Buach Beauty

By conrad  
I went to this location every single day of the last Rowardennan Meet, and once or twice before during previous meets, and I never got exactly what I wanted - no really good light on the mountain. But in other respects this comes close, so let's see what you think.

I took a lot of shots here, but the majority were ruined by hail and raindrops on my filter and lens. (Wiping the filter clean all the time is bad enough, but the hail got behind the filter and on the lens as well - irritated the heck out of me!)

This was my first shot there, on the Friday of the meet, and it gave me the least cloning work in Photoshop, so I thought I'd put this up.

Not the most creative composition I came up with at this location, but at least in this shot I've got the tree that Keith hates so much pretty far to the left, hopefully that works - what do you think?

Comments and mods welcome, as always!

Captured beautifully to me, lovely colours. I like every thing about it, the sky, the water, the snow on the Buch

Well, I'm glad you're almost happy. I'd be ecstatic!
Cracking shot, doesn't matter how often I see this beauty, reminds me of the day I climbed it with my best mate, though we had sunshine which helped.

Not as pretty as Holland when the tulips are in bloom, good capture otherwise, Chuck

Thanks, everyone!

Rodd - Yes, definitely my favourite mountain. Can't keep myself from going back to it...

Chuck - Tulips are nice, but for me nothing beats a good mountain!

Very nice shot. The maintain really stands out between the sky and the foreground and the slow shutter has worked so well with the waterfall.
