Welcome.........

A stunningly beautiful capture for your first ePz upload. Gorgeous light and clarity,composition is spot on with the lead in of the grasses guiding the eye through the mountain. The side lighting really enhances form and texture in the grass and snow field.

Look forward to seeing more Smile

ok, I am particulalry fussy when it comes to geography. Rannoch Moor is not in the north of Scotland. It covers mostly Argyll & Lochaber. And Glencoe runs east west into the sea at Ballachulish which is on the west coast.

Northern Scotland can be assumed to be anywhere north of the Great Glen and extends for 400 km north of here until you fall off the pole facing edge of Shetland. Wester Ross, Cromarty, Sutherland, Caithness, etc are truly northern Scotland. And the loch is actually the river Coupall which freezes every winter.

A nice cliche to start with however. And where's the guy playing the bagpipes? I drove past him last week freezing his arse off in front of a bus load of birds from Thailand.
