[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another of the rays of sunlight in the mountains.
Taken over Christmas in the Highlands of Scotland, this one is from the summit of Stob Ghabhar (1087m) looking westwards towards the sun (which was not actually setting at the time!).

As you can see, mountains and sunlight fascinates me, and I love to capture it on 'film'.

The clouds were actally pale grey, but in an attempt not to over expose the light from the sun, the clouds have come out a lot darker which has added a lot of atmosphere.

OK - Photo details - Converted from .RAW, cropped, resized, sharpened and border added. Nothing else done.
