The two little white dots on the right hand side of v2 are a couple of transit vans ,that may give an idea of scale.

An excellent panorama, Neil: the B and W version seems to have brought out more detail in the shadowy lower slopes, although the coloured version is attractive in it's own right.
The cold recently has been enough to cut you in two so I can imagine what it was like up there in the Glen.
And you mention the sad events of these talented young folk lost in an avalanche......lives cut tragically short.

Two excellent images. No one should ever under estimate the danger as well as the stunning beauty of our Scottish mountains! Congratulations on the new addition to your family. 4lbs? So tiny.

Beautiful Glen Coe - one of my favourite places in Scotland. Such a tragedy to strike at the weekend.
Wonderful panorama here Neil.
Congrats to the new arrival too, hope all are well. Moira

V1 does seem more dramatic but V2 is my favourite on this occasion.

Dramatic panoramic capture enhanced by the mono Neil, though I have to admit a preference for V2. Hope you enjoyed your trip to Scotland, and I see the usual Scottish weather was specially laid on for you! Smile
Congratulations on the new great grandaughter, a happy occasion for all the family, bet Joan can't wait to get her hands on her, though, at that weight she'll probably be in an incubator for a wee spell.
Rgds., Jim

Not often I prefer black and white to colour but I do with this shot Neil. I checked out the two transit vans in the colour version and they look really small against those huge mountains. Its an excellent stitch of four shots and as Eric said to Ern 'I can't see the join'.
My congratulations on the safe arrival the new Great granddaughter.

24 Jan 2013 - 12:51 PM

Two excellent versions of this famous landmark Neil, congratulations on the birth of your grand daughter Smile

A wonderful panoramic view of this impressive mountain range, the colour version has the greater impact IMHO
