Misty Mountain...

By Scottishlandscapes  
...I was driving down from Portree on Skye when I spotted the mist drifting along the Cuillin Hills and the sun catching it as it passed across Sgurr Nan Gillean.

I spent some time photographing the scene and enjoying the light show, as I turned to walk back to my car, I spotted a couple sitting in a Motor Home eating lunch and reading newspapers, the magic happening in front of them totally ignored.

This is stunning, Dougie! Have to polish up the old UA for this, I think!

At least you were seeing more of the mountainside here than we saw in five days when there back in 2008, Dougie: when the mist comes down there, it blots out everything.

Many Thanks for your Award Alan, I have to say I was buzzing with excitement when I saw this happening.
Couldn't get along the road quick enough to ditch the car and get at this sight.

Thanks again
Dougie
I can imagine your excitement seeing the scene reveal itself! A truly magical capture ! Like to see bikes but too wary to ride a big one! I had a moped once !!!!Wink

The way people ignore their surroundings never ceases to amaze and depress me. No way could I miss this, though I might not have the wit to photograph it.
Wonderfully atmospheric; needs no further description from me.

Simply beautiful. Something that has to be watched. You have captured it beautifully, I can feel it moving.......Sandy
Ronnie thanks very much for your Award, very kind. I've been out most of the morning, hence the delay.
I'm well chuffed when I get Awards from other photographers.

Wonderful hole in the mist/clouds Dougie with just enough definition on the right to provide a wonderful focal point. Great photography.

I remember setting up the camera for a shot of Adreck Castle. Spent a while getting the right pov for the light, deciding which filters to use, should I go for bracketed? Couple drove up in a rental car, window was wound down, two hands and a point & shoot emerged at the end of a pair of arms (female), one click and they drove away without even looking at the resulting snap on the rear screen. All over in 8,9 seconds, roughly.
