[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The female pheasant photo wasn't up to scratch (yesterday's promise), so one last one from my Christmas archives, even though most people are fed up of snow (sorry folks, I am a winter lover, not a summer lover - can't cope with even slightly warm weather.. anything above 16C is too warm for me).

This is the Buachaille Etive Mor range of mountains at the entrance to Glencoe (valley to the right) and Glen Etive (valley off to the left) taken from Rannoch Moor. It is the classic Glencoe view.

The peak is Stob Dearg (1022m) which I climbed on my birthday in the snow... The view from the top would have been splendid, I just got glimpses in the gaps in the clouds - about the only day I didn't get any decent photos... But the climb was most definitely worth it. We walked the entire range, some 7km each way (which is not visible in the photo), decending in near darkness after a long walk in winter conditions.

If you look carefully you will see a silver car on the right hand side which will give some scale to this picture.

Photo details - 2 photos, taken in RAW, converted to jpeg, stiched together using Panorama Maker 3.5, resized and sharpened. The tripod in this instance was the car roof.

This is my last post for at least next 10days or so, (visiting the mountains again!), but I promise that I will catch up on critiques and pictures on my return just before Easter...

Wonderful photo, composition and technically wise! Thanks for sharing - Xplorator Radu

I think this is a great subject for a panoramic shot. It really captures the grand scale of the scene. It has a nice composition and looks technically well executed to me.
Happy mountain travels!

Excellent image good lighting and presentation...
The composition is great as well...

Bonjour Emma

Bravo et merci ....JP

Hi Emma,
This is a very striking landscape. Very strong composition and perfect exposure. I'd love to get the opportunity to visit one day.

Hi Emma, Great landscape, Good crisp photo, the colors seem to be right on Dof excelle, TFS Kyle

Hi Emma,
I don't mind seeing the winter photo from you. They are all excellent and give a excellent image of the beauty of the area. This one is great as well, and does give a feeling that human are small comparing to nature. Have a good trip up in the mountains, and hope to see some result soon.

  • Great

Beautiful picture, I like the warm, almost monochromatic colors. Good composition and a good note too. Thanks Emma.


Hi Emma, this really conveys a feeling of winter and everything being closed down for the hibernation period. It's a lovely panorama, beautifully composed and exposed. Nicely done :)

Hi Emma,


TFS :-)
