I was looking for a related technique, but nothing arrived.

fantastic Dougie, that bit of purple heather is just the icing on the cake. Can't tell you how much I want to get back there Smile

I clocked this vantage point when I went for a run along the path and up onto the tops, one to be noted when I go back.
BTW Dougie, have you shots of or aware of any great images of the 'Table' between the pinnacles and the summit ridge? It really is a geological masterpiece that deserves a bit of photographic attention, another one to add to my wee list.

Oh, you should have slipped a bit further down on your a*se, then maybe you wouldn't have obscured the wee lochs by the tree.....Wink

Quote:It's horrible feeling when the seat of your pants start sliding across the grass here.
I'm wondering which would be worse, being inside them at the time or watching them slide off on their own...
Love the intricacy of this, the way lines weave and wind.

Great composition with some lovely view!!! Well captured image. Really like it.

I could have gone over the edge without my parachute as well and got a bigger laugh John.

A particularly fine example of the tree that will cling on to almost any surface. A bit like the seat of the pants, but slower acting!

Wonderful view, wonderful colours and a superb perspective.
Moira Wooldridge wash your mouth out with soap!
The seat of my pamts seem to be getting as much interest as the image. But I introduced the subject.

Try adding pants to the tags, and see what happens...

I'm so sorry I missed this bit when I was up in the summer, but alas there was a limit to time, and this lost out. Next time...
Very dramatic skyline,

Best so far Dougie from this trip. I don't mind the tree cutting out the loch as in this light it wasn't doing much and I like the road included from this angle - adds a fine curve.

Hope the seat and the pants have recovered.

This is perfect, Dougie. Exceptional detail throughout - wonderful how the light picks out all those glorious colours and textures.

I see you found the wee tree Dougie. Fortune favours the brave, hope you didn't slip too far. Great colours in this landscape.

Fabulous image Dougie and right now I an really envious of you getting this was no1 on my list of places I wanted to photography but after 2 visits (sunrise/sunset) I had to give up and move on because the mist just lingered...

Stunning....if for no other place I would like to return to view this place!!

Better and better, this image is fantastic and I could look at it for hours. The tree has given itself a real struggle of a growing position! Oh! that view is just amazing.

One of your best, Dougie. Lovely lighting, and the tree is perfectly positioned. Personally I might've reduced the saturation in the greens just a tad.

Its also not the best of places for a rug to want to go chasing tumbling stones and boulders... that also gets your heart racing..Smile

Beautiful work from a beautiful corner of the island.

Classic Skye image - never been at this point with a camera, this is now on my list!

I wonder what the x-pan would do with this scene Ian?
