The Croft

By Dennis_Bromage
Just back from 8 days in the Torridon area of Scotland. Absolutely mind blowing scenery and mountain vistas up there but unfortunately the weather refused to cooperate for the vast majority of the time, I guess it is the highlands! In fact it seemed that every time we opened our camera bags it triggered a deluge!!! Anyway found some a...mazing new location, just have to get back up there in better weather to photograph them and we did get a few breaks...


I think this is probably my favourite image from the trip, taken shortly after sunset as yet another downpour cleared into Upper Loch Torridon...

Thanks for looking Smile
Den

Trademark technical perfection, Den, even if the weather gods weren't cooperating!
Still, as you say, there's always next time; I don't think Scotland's going anywhere in the near future! Grin

Lovely well composed image

Excellent!
Really shows the beauty of this amazing place.
The bad weather is part of the charm of Torridon.

Even when the heavens open and the rain lashes down the mountains and glens in this area show a beauty that fills the brain with their grandeur. I always love a visit to Torridon hail, rain or shine.

Like this a lot with such a cracking lead in . Wonderful light colour /tones and first class composition . Well worth returning to a few times though these locatins as the light is always so different throughout the year....Phil
