Sublime Pines

By hwatt  
Loch A Chroisg, Achnasheen, Scotland

Though the soft coloured light at the beginning and ends of the day is usually better than at other times on this occasion it wouldn't have been of any particular benefit. Either side of Loch A Chroisg sees mountains rising directly and oppressively out of the water and for light to illuminate these trees it is better to be there in the late morning. A gorgeous heavy sky undoubtedly helped matters as did the differential patches of light that create the depth that solid or zero illumination would fail to provide. The final result is all that really counts and I find it to be very satisfactory.

Lovely colours and a fine composition. I always struggle with Velvia 50, can't seem to meter it properly, not so bad with the 100 though. I was seriously considering a Pentax 67 last year but went for a Bronica GS-1 in the end, I am still unsure whether I made the right decision.
And I have just had a look at your portfolio, stunning work.

Hi Andy

Yes the Pentax is a great field camera. I guess I am so used to Velvia I have worked out most of its wee quirks.

A perfectly balanced composition, Ian, in which the elements all play a vital part.
