How can you keep something like this hidden forsuch a long time.You must have some stock of crackers Dougie. This is wonderful. Congratulations.
Cheers Danny, that's why it's so much fun trawling the hard drives. Thanks too for the RC,

Such lovely polarised colours,

Some photographs make you feel like you were there and this one definately does - it reminds me of a cold, crisp frosty morning, lovely

Fantastic conditions. The kind I dream of when I am driving up the A82 but only occasionally as good as this....... usually during the week while I'm at work!!
Nice work Doug.

Well Dougie, I searched through all the comments and I can't find any reference as to where this is ..... Rannoch Moor perhaps? It certainly had me running for my woollie socks and thermal kn....rs. Great clarity and outstanding colours .... you are a great promoter of all that is beautiful in Scotland.

I hope we have this to look forward to this winter. Especially since I can enjoy it from a place that does not get snow!

We seem to quickly heading in that direction here too Patrick, I hope we see more snow this year, we don't need a blanket over the entire country.

A real classic from this spot. Been there many times but never got this clarity - it's never been quite cold enough! Great work

wow - fingers crossed for a little snow Smile

The dales are nice but you've got some real majestic stuff to play with up there Dougie - that sky is special.

did you try a mono conversion of this? taking the blue channel down to about -10% will make those clouds look spooky as hell!
Landscape photography at it's finest! Well done, Dougie.
