Red Cregennen...

By Scottishlandscapes  
...another one never show before from Llynnau Cregennen in Wales, as the sun rose on Cadair Idris. A marvellous morning which will always stay with me, a wonderful week in Wales with my friend Claire Carter.

Dougie this is stunning, that little island looks like a boat sailing into the misty sunrise. It even has a flag flying!

Simple but amazing impact, just that hint of red in the sky and mountains lift it to a different level.

Wow Dougie. That's better than the picture you posted the other day from that location. Breathtaking.

A scene like that you would remember forever, Dougie: beautifully balanced composition, the light and colours at that time of day just magical, and the mist in the distance is just the icing on the cake.
What a wonderful image Dougie - love it !

Gordon Bennet !....a bottomless pit of excellence !

On a par with your previous image....but that 'zing' of red in the sky & on the hillside makes for another stunning shot ! always - 1st class !

Another glorious photograph. I'm not sure, but I would be tempted to clone out the little puffs of pink vapour top centre. Perhaps I'm just being picky.... Really beautiful anyway.

Wow, mystical , magical...all the things that Cadair commands to be seen in this image Dougie....fabulous.

I have been up that mountain a couple of times and each time it gained my respect.

Alas, if you mean a black background on here I cannot choose as I am not an E2 member.....thanks for the wonderful compliment and when Yo Yo plays it really is music to soothe an aching soul
