Five Sisters of Kintail

By pfheyes  
This will probably die a death, but here goes. Smile

The view is of the Five Sisters ridge, comprising of a panoramic stitch of two images. I quite like the way the unlit peak dominates the frame, but I appreciate your opinions, as always, on the matter.

It has been uploaded as a panoramic, so please view large, and feel free to rip into it.

I really like this panoramic, just imagine if you'd timed it with a Tornado at Low level through the valley.
Great captures and stitching

It's a crackin' image of some great mountain light.
A little more saturation would help but, ... I love it 'as is' !!!

A very well taken and stitched panorama, Pete.
Seems like it's a difficult subject to portray with little or no foreground.
For me the drama is really in the bleakness of this landscape and would, perhaps, be better served by a mono conversion wherein you could be fairly aggressive with the contrast selectively to emphasise the stark foreground peaks against the distant ridge, which could really give some oomph to the huge scale of the place.
Lovely shot.

I only wish I could vote as this is a magnificent mountain landscape. I too like the dominant peak in the foreground and the sunlit mountains behind give this real depth. The lack of colours doesn't give this EPZ appeal (as above, maybe b/w?), but this is a quality image Pete Smile

I really like this image and the only thing that I think would have improved it would to have taken it without the shadow on the mountain on the right.

The large displays the immense feeling you get each time you drive under these magnificent mountains. From both directions they dominate the scene with that solid face of hard stone.
A bold composition and taken from height shows a version of these mountains many of us will never see for ourselves.

Thumb doesn't do it any favours Pete. More the pity because the large version shows the ridge in great detail. Takes me back to when I crawled round in the mid 90s.

Great image Pete. I really like the viewpoint and composition. Whats the ridge like for walking?

Hi Rich,

It's a great walking ridge and a deserved classic. Nice and airy in places, but nothing too taxing. The climb onto the ridge wasn't as hard as some people make out, though I was knackered at the end of the walk - the climb onto the Sgurr Fhuaran was a bit of a grind. I think it reflected my fitness at the time more than anything else. Smile
