The Cuillin

By pfheyes  
If you looked at my previous upload, you will already be familiar with my gripes, moans and whinges about not getting the image I wanted, planning to take shots from the Cuillin ridge but the weather was pants etc. etc.

So here's another consolation image. It's not big, it's not clever, but I'm still happy I took it. Especially as the midge squadrons hadn't quite mustered a full attack at this stage. Smile

All comments and critique welcome. Thanks for looking.

Nice image from here Pete, you were lucky with the midges, this is a favourite spot for them around the pond here, been eaten alive a couple of times here and my skin is crawling just thinking about them.

A great dappled light on the mountain

Thanks all.

Hi Dougie - I got the full midgie attack by the river. I was glad to have the net over my head, but my top did not have elasticated sleeves. The little b*****ds crawled up my arms and got me there. :-(

Hi Craig - I agree with you about the foreground light. This is as good as the light got, sadly, before the clouds and rain came in ... again. Wink

This is even better than your last one, imo.
Very well composed, indeed especially with the midge problem!
(I know how irritating they can be: over 120 separate bites in my first two days in Scotland two years ago - ouch!)
All the best, and very glad to see you uploading again!

This has a different mood to your last upload - much calmer - and provides a good contrast to it. The foreground rocks echoing the mountains make me think of the phrase "from little acorns do mighty oaks grow" (or whatever the proper version is!) although as the smaller rocks are formed by erosion, perhaps that should be the other way around!
