Double the Light

By JohnParminter  
I guess when photographing mountains you are always after a bit of light, a rainbow just adds the cliche likely?

I know the guys and gals up at Pitlochry are heading this way on Saturday so here's a taster and I hope they get some decent light.

I met up with them for one night at the hostel and had a bit of a laugh with them, cheers Paul for the ale.

LOL, that's going to make them sick if they miss light like this.

Seen a lot of rainbows this week myself, but I have always been in the rainy bit! Sad

This is terrific John, one to be very pleased with Smile

Cheers Neil and Melanie, to be truthful I think the light is too much or at least in the wrong spot and unfortunately divides the image in half but I just couldn't resist a fleeting shot of the rainbow and hope it makes up for it a wee bit.

Thanks Andy and all.

This mountain tends to live in the shadow of the Big Shepherd across the glen. You've done it proud here with it's halo of colour.
Nice work and yet abother fine image from Scotland.

No Den, just being honestly critical of it, I know it would have been better with different light.
