The Fiddler's View

By hwatt  
The Fiddler, Inverpolly, Scotland.

A truly memorable day hiking up the Fiddler a precipitous angular rock face that drops away some 1500 feet straight down to the glen below without bouncing. The walk up is not difficult but snow made it slightly more treacherous, though I have to admit infinitely more beautiful. I wanted some strong foreground elements that showed the season and conditions in the finest light. I had to search for the first and wait a good while for the second. The parallel diagonals of layered sandstone rock conveniently separated by a layer of virgin snow provided the former, while cloud and dappled sunlight striking various peaks and lochans created the visual interest I was looking for.

The FG elements are strong and striking and work well to pull the eye across the tops to Stac P and Sulliven beyond. The light was also well worth waiting for and adds lots of interest and contrast to the distance. I bet this looks great as a large print, given the format you shoot in. Smile
