Ord River Valley

By IanFlindt  
This was captured at the side of the road that winds its way over moorland and down valley into the Southern Skye village of Ord. We had hoped to catch the fantastic autumn colours we had seen here the day before. However, the storm that pounded the area the night before this image was taken well-and-truly knocked that plan on the head!

I agree with Dave. The comp allows the viewer to be guided right through to those distant hills. Lovely autumn hues too Smile

It's OK you can admit to us you have an "Old Master" filter for photoshop. Fantastic lighting.

Think it's only available to people by the name of Flindt. I can't seem to get it!!
Lovely Ian, as Dave says, has real depth to this.

Thanks, Martin and Stuart. I've just printed it out and must say I'm rather chuffed....which goes some way to compensate for the fact that it has gone down like a lead balloon here on dear old EPZ.

Nice colours and it has a pastel look to it. Like the composition and the cows in the foreground help push the image further.

no accounting for taste Wink the image does have an old style richness about it, well captured Ian.

Thanks, Kevin and Jon. Since it was my fav image from our trip I should have predicted the EPZ response. Wink

We did see the Cuillins from Ord, Jon. The light was a little bright and the Cuillins partially concealed, but what a place!
