The Buckle

By pmorgan  
You’ve seen it before a million times, and you’ll see it again, but this is my take on “That Place” at Glencoe.

I missed the snow this week unlike Neil (Javam) who got an outstanding shot from here complete with snow, but I did get some nice light.

This is a 6 shot stitch with the hope of trying to get something a little different whilst keeping all the elements that make this place so magical!

I’ll catch up with all my PM’s when I’ve had a bit of kip!

Great to meet everyone at the Rowardennan meet – see you all again soon!

the compositional balance in this shot is exceptional (not always easy when stitching multiple images).

Up there with the very best from, what must be, one of the most photographed places in the UK.

Congratulations Paul!

Stunning piece of work Paul... the light, the colours, the detail., the drama. I really should try this pano approach... brilliant.

It was great tripping around with you and Neil over the weekend... and look forward to getting an invite to visit down your way for some seascapes sometime in the future.
