I bet getting to this spot was 'eventful' in the deep snow, some nice little streams and drops to catch you out ... worth it though!!!

Have to agree with Hubbie - if you escaped with dry feet, I'd be very surprised! Wink

A lovely Winter image Sue, nicely composed with a coold crisp feel it. I hope it's still standing, with all those high Winds you've been having lately.

Superb Sue - totally feeling of complete isolation here, it's very beautiful in its simplicity!

Love the simplicity of this, Sue.

If I may be so bold:
A 16x9 crop up from the bottom and a contrast boost (including setting the black and white points) would transform this to great effect.
You'd lose some sky which is featurless and isn't really helping, the compositon would also improve and the contrast would give the snow a lot more crispness.
An opinion, anyway, and perhaps worth a look! Smile

Certainly captures the sense of all that emptiness and cold! I like the comp very much.

The defiant tree stands out well against the snow and heavy skt, Bill is very good with crop ideas, worth a try Sue.

That is lovely! I have only ever been to Glencoe in early summer, when it's full of tourists, but winter with snow looks very appealing. Smile (on a calm day!)

I like that Sue; the wee tree seems to be reaching for sustenance from the rather bleak sky and the emptiness suggests it isn't going to get what it's reaching for. From that point of view I like the composition as it is.

It certainly does looks lonesome! It does enhance the bleakness of the area, especially with all that snow; like too how the clouds in the distance seem to be almost touching the ground. A beautiful shot, Sue, with nice sidelighting picking out the textures in the snow Smile

A marvellous sense of loneliness and bleak isolation to this, Sue. The low mist/cloud along the mountains add to the feeling.

Lovely image. Sorry to inform you that the tree fell in the storms just before Xmas 2011 (11.12.11 to be precise). It now sadly rests in pieces. (RIP!)

Thanks Ian. That is so sad! We haven't been down that way for a while so I had no idea. I knew the little tree on Lochan na h'Achlaise had gone, but didn't realise we'd lost this one too.

Another iconic tree falls. I have to say that this is one of the most captivating I have seen from here.
