The strength of composition overcomes the murky conditions. Oodles of atmosphere and a good capture that most would not even have considered.

Just had to be Scotland Richard great capture love it

I don't think this is the A82, it could be the A83 north of the rest and be thankful on the way to Inveraray? Looks just like Scotland on a soft weather day.Lovely.


or heading down into Kintail on the way to Skye.

Hope you had a lookout for traffic behind you! I've had to move sharpish a couple of times when taking this kind of image. How the highlands often are - conveys dreichness really well.

Richard, didn't realize this was one of yours when the thumbnail version attracted my attention. It's a wonderful shot. How'd you get that slight break in the clouds to line up perfectly with the white line in the road?
Nicely done.

Atmosphere and mood captured beautifully. Really like the mist, and how the grey skies bring out the colour of the vegetation. This image actually reminds me of a spot in Norway - so similar.

Sums up just about every day we've seen when we've been out lately too. Very brave of you to set up your tripod in the middle of the road.
