I don't recall ever seeing a section of rainbow occupying such a large area of the frame, Dougie; it's almost as if the distant mountainside is painted in the spectrum, and contrasting so well with the shadowed f/g where that house gives such an appreciation of scale.

Awesome, awesome, awesome!
This image is almost frightening - these mountains looks so big compared to the cottage at their feet. You are very fortunate Dougie, only a few people can tell that they have been looking through a rainbow!

A great atmospheric image Dougie. I always wanted to climb this one but never got round to it. Maybe now that I have retired.....

Dougie that's almost better than looking through a mirror. Outstanding photography only possible with skill and knowledge of equipment.

This one's all about colour and the impression of weight from the mountains. Great sense of scale and the beauty of nature.
