Upper Loch Torridon

By VicBarnes
After 29 years of constantly visiting and photographed the Highlands I finally took a landscape that said everything I wanted to say about its raw beauty. It may not be a great picture but for personal reasons it is my favourite!

Very nice image, like the way the road leads down into the picture, only me, not sure if the contrast needs to be tweeked a little Smile

Thanks Geoff. Yes, it could do with a tweak in contrast. Funny thing is that the full size file is OK. It seems as if resizing has had an effect. Hmm...

Hi Vic

A lovely shot - agree about the contrast but thats easily fixed. When you save for upload do you use the 'save for web' option - and then view in your browser before uploading that will give you a better idea of what the uploaded file will look like.

I love the road snaking through the shot - gives a great lead through the shot and also the rocks and grass in the foreground. A lovely 'natural' shot. Hope to see many more.

Reminisce of 'Brigadoon',Vic.
Except the MGM movie was filmed on the back lot and studio bound.What you have here is the REAL thing...any minute now you will see Cyd & Gene dancing 'up the road' to the tune of 'The Heather on the Hill'..
They should have come here to film,instead of a painted backdrop scene.MGM's loss-our gain.

Outstanding beauty captured to perfection.

Two wheels, a full tank, and this doesn't get better than this!
