A touch of magic for me. The colours and light sing out in beauty and I really love the foreground and reflection.



A superb shot, sharp as a tack and showing off the winter colours in the scene so well, Sue.


Thanks all for your votes and comments.

Paul, thanks for taking the time to comment, but I don't really understand what you're saying here. If, as I think, you're suggesting that I've added the reflection then, yes, you are totally wrong. If I'd done that, then I would've given the category as digitally manipulated. With a clear blue sky and no wind, there was bound to be a reflection. In fact, I had to move around to a position where the reflection of the summit was not lost in the reeds.

Another great image from you Sue!


This is a really gorgeous shot Sue. I can feel the atmosphere just by looking at it, both you and the the Light have created something magical here.

Once anyone has been there and photographed this magical mountain you become aware of just how many guises it has. This is beautiful and holds great visual integrity. I have a shot from here with a band of hanging cloud and incredible vivid colour that I've not posted because, different to this, it looks unreal.

I never get tired of seeing this mighty mountain, and it looke particulary impressive when seen in front of a perfect clear blue sky like this, Sue. You can almost taste that clean, fresh air that is so peculiar to the Highlands.



I'm really enjoying this tour of the Glencoe area through your lovely images, Sue, and this is the next best thing to actually being there Wink Another beauty here, wonderful natural colours, and love the reflection Smile

Superb Sue. The reflection adds another dimension to the view of this beautiful mountain. The foreground detail and colour are superb.

I think Paul is probably referring to the clarity of the reflection. To me there is obviously nothing wrong here its just that the water is very still and clear. I am sure the the obvious clarity of the air will have contributed as well.



Well worked with your comp here Sue, good details and colours too
Regards Richard
