Award Shortlist   


By Johnnybairdphotography
This is the reason I do this - some days Mother Nature just drops your jaw to the floor. Mornings like this, where everything aligns beautifully, make every ounce of sweat, previous failures and disappointments all worthwhile. Landscape photography can test your perseverance and patience to their limits; there is no studio here, lighting canít be manipulated, weather canít be restrained and shots canít be re-taken. If a moment passes you by then it is gone forever. You get one chance to make something of it, and you like what you are given or you go home, tail between your legs. I never, ever regret going out and exploring, but when you are in the thick of fantastic conditions it feels like a giant reward for all those trials and tribulations. Shown is an image of Glencoe Mountain (left) and Sron na Creise (right) as a cloud inversion wraps around their bases and soft first light illuminates their summits.

Beautiful image *****
What a great shot. The colours are lovely and soft with the nicely focused mountains in the back. Great description of the rare joys and the many disappointments a photographer experiences.. I am still a novice and it is pleasing to hear that I am not alone with these ups and downs.
