Castle Stalker After Glow

By rowarrior
Another one from 2 weeks ago on our frozen sojourn to Rannoch Moor/Glen Coe. Having looked on the map I realised that Castle Stalker, which I'd seen some great pictures of at an Ian Cameron talk at Camera Club a few weeks before, was really just round the corner from Glen Coe, and was a good place for sunset.

It was a bitterly cold day, -9 for most of it, and apart from a cloudy bit in the middle, there were mostly clear skies. The sunset itself wasn't that fantastic, but the after glow got more and more colourful.

C&Cs welcome Smile

This is a smashing shot Katy. I think it would work well as a pano, with the foreshore cropped out.

Agree with Fraser re the fg crop, not sure it adds too much to the shot left in there. I think it's a lovely shot, nice tones and not overcooked. My personal preference would also be to push the the castle into a complete silhouette - but that's not necessarily anything wrong with the shot, just my own taste!

Hope this helps,

Beautiful shot Katy; great pastel colours and soft reflection and love the silhoette and the misty layers in the distance
Hope you had a great Christmas

A lovely shot, but maybe the idea of a panorama makes sense.

Pano as a mod , horizon slap in the middle but I think it works with the reflection.
I looks like you were there at the perfect time.Smile

Thanks for the mod Penny. I had been closer to the shore but my friend was hungry and walking back to the car, just got to stop about halfway up the beach and have one last go at the afterglow. Don't think he's got hte patience to be a landscaper lol

Beautiful colours in this shot! I like the mod, as well as the original - they both have a different feel. The postbox format is effective, but the layered look of the original is pleasing with the foreground left in.
Happy New Year, hope you are well.

Excellent shot. I think both the original and the mod work very well.
