Another shot of the spot where we camped in Glen Affric last Friday night. It's amazing how much the scene changed in the seven minutes between my last upload of this location and this one.

And it's really weird taking all my photos handheld at the moment, but there's no way I can carry my trusty tripod as well as my share of the camping gear. Sure the tripod will get another outing one day soon though Smile

Many thanks for your votes and comments on my recent uploads.

Loving your Glen Affric images Sue.



Brilliant sky and well held at 1/20s.



Superb image, great work to get such a shot like this hand held.



Beautifully windswept, Sue.


Thanks to all for your votes and comments.

Dave, I held my breath and struck lucky with this one. Most of the others taken when it was this dark were really shaky and had to be deleted.

I agree, very impressive.


What an idyllic spot to camp (in sunny warm weather!). Love the composition and sky Sue!
We had a pdi evening at my camera club from a local judge who loves taking mountain landscapes (his website is called Touching the Light if anyone's interested); he says he's a mountaineer first and photographer second, so never carries a tripod (having walked the length of the Pyrenees last summer - 500 miles in 50 days). He says that he uses yoga breath; he breathes out, stills his body and slowly pushes the shutter. Fascinating...


Quite an amazing difference in colours and the light, Sue, to your earlier upload. I must say I definitely prefer this of the two, that sky is just wonderful. Can't imagine it would have looked any better with the camera on your tripod Smile
