Black Mount Winter...

By Scottishlandscapes  
...a REPOST from February 2007. I recall standing here for some time waiting for the light to hit the fg and Black Mount, for company I had the cracking of the ice and the occasional rustle of a bitingly cold wind.

All those rocks seem to be looking towards the horizon too, and waiting.

Excellent shot Dougie with beautiful clarity. This is what it's all about. The landscape that you love in all of it's glory. I don't think I'm going to see a better landscape image today, so please accept my user award. I'm only on E2 for a week - so there won't be many of these!

Lovely shot Dougie. Really like the warmth of the foreground colours against the cold of everything else. Well worth seeing again.
I'll enjoy it Andy and I hope you enjoy the experience of the larger images, maybe you can find the cash to join E2 I know it's hard just now for all of us.


Thanks again.

Thanks again.

If it's hard for you just think how difficult it is for the rest of us poor paupers, however something like this stands good little or large. Outstandingly beautiful. Watch how you go tomorrow night.
The guy's retired when they built your conservatory Danny, your now a double glazed pauper, my double vision tomorrow night is me trying to keep up with the Brannigans.


Please don't mention my title.

Fantastic image Dougie. The light captured and clarity are first rate. Your best shots ( and IMo this is one of them ) really make you feel as if you could step into the image.

Somehow, the rocks in the fg seem to be a reflection of the Mounts on the horizon. Absolutely brilliant image Dougie.

A beautiful landscape Dougie - It probably looks much the same today - lots of snow in Inverness, I just hope I can dig the car out. All the best for 2010.
