By Scottishlandscapes  
...snow on top of the There Sisters of Glencoe and the road for some scale.

V2 without the road, a slice closer to the mountains and the light.

Lovely shot and I think the road version is better as it leads the eye through the scene.

If there is one person not knowing why I think Scotland is one of the most beautiful places in this world - well, he/she should see this. And then decide if it isn't worth more than one visit.
Very impressive, monumental general view of this fantastic pass.

Having seen V1, I want the road to stay. The curve is an accessible lead-in to the rugged heights beyond, and it 'grounds' the composition nicely. It also provides the human scale, which is quite puny by comparison.
But if I had not seen V1 I would be quite happy with V2...

For anyone remotely acquainted with Scottish history the name Glencoe has a particular ring to it . . . I feel that the reference to human scale is important, thus adding my voice to the preferences for V1.

The road adds scale and I guess it's not too intrusive so I think I prefer V1.

Superb light picking out all the detail in the mountains and which you have managed to capture so well, Dougie: prefer V 1 as the presence of the road helps one appreciate scale and proximity of these mountains to the way through the Pass.

I'm not a fan of roads in images but it works here. V1 is definitely my preference. I love the orange grass which shines out against the grey hulk of the hills.
Thanks to all for the comments and conclusion on V1, I kept the road in as a lead and to give scale you seem to agree with me.

Many thanks to RonnieAG for your Award, I'm thrilled Ronnie, I had a great on Monday and this adds to it.

No doubt at all, Dougie. V1, for all the reasons already stated above.
Those colours and that light are just as magnificent in their own way as the sisters themselves are.

(We had 15cm snow during the nightSad after two weeks of melting snow and up to +10c)

Stunning, has to be V1 showing the grandeur of the mountains in contrast to the road. I'd love to have this on my wall.

Lovely detail in these atmospheric images ! Gill ( yes i did get the ferry with the girls on a wee trip to Ardnamurchan and we had a memorable meal at the Crinnan hotel !)

The detail you have captured in the mountains is amazing.
