...taken in Decemeber 2009, never posted before, at 2.30pm the light was very harsh, I was kneeling in the frozen mud beside the falls trying to keep some depth to the image.

The scenery and the light are splendid and I love the cloud-topped mountain.

Excellent image Dougie.

I would say you have attained your objective with the light for sure...cracking composition too. Masterclass in getting the best from the light my friend.

Large is well worth a peek !

I think the f/g and mid ground recede very well towards the mountain and the clouds are great. An excellent photo.

Worth muddy knees, to get that foreground detail and texture - it's so tactile.

Super composition with great depth achieved, Dougie: the double cloud effect over the mountain top is most unusual but so effective.

A shot that really stands out from the host of shots taken at this location, Dougie. Excellent.

It's beautiful Dougie, can't imagine why you've never showed this til now................Sandy
Sandy it got buried under a lot of good trips i had just after the December visit to Rannoch Moor. I managed a string of good work from the area at the join of the two Glens on this side of Rannoch Moor. I only discovered it when reinstating a hard disc which failed. Lucky me you might say, it might never have been seen again.
Thanks for your comment.:Grin

I thought there must have been some good reason. Good you had backup. It would have been a shame had you lost it...

You have certainly succeeded with the depth. Superb light and colour, and the cloud formation is amazing.

Nice one Doug. For what it's worth, it looks like a Pileus formation

Cheers for the user award Dave, and all of the comments, you don;t often get somebody spending as much time commenting on as many images. Let's hope I'll be doing the same when you return from your visit to Scotland, I will be hoping to join you at some part of the trip my friend.
