Buachaille Etive Mor


Nikon D70 @ 18mm, 1/3 sec, f/22, ISO 200


Previous · Current · Next


Even though I knew the weather was going to be poor today, I quite fancied a trip up to the Glencoe area just to make sure everything was still there. An early rise at 6.30am was somewhat wasted as the completely overcast skies rendered the sun rise practically non-existent - I certainly didn't see it anyway! I think the last time I was at Glencoe when the sun was out must have been almost a year ago now - maybe I'll have better luck next time.

Anyway, it wasn't a complete waste of time as I quite like the way this one came out - the overcast skies here probably did me a few favours.

I classic Glencoe sky :/
We got up at 4am one summer morning to try and catch the sunrise up at na h-Aclaise and were greated with thick grey clouds and lots of rain. Sucks doesn't it?
Well, I think despite the weather this shot is great - and you made the most of what you had :)

Cool shot. I like the clouds as well. This picture reminds me of the Zeppelin album Houses of the Holy.

an unbelievable landscape. The chinese believes in good fengshui when there's mountain and water... i think this pretty much qualifies for it!

Lovely motion blur on the water. 1/3" is nice, I'd gone as slow as 1/15" and wasn't totally happy. Perhaps I'll reshoot. Clouds have a slight purple cast to them?

This is one of my favourite mountains and you've certainly done it justice here. Cracking stuff.

Thanks for the comments everyone!

Jem: Yeah, Scottish weather in general sucks! Especially at the moment. Although I did meet some other photographers who said that on Friday the weather was fantastic - lots of spells of sun, followed by dark heavy clouds, followed by shafts of light and rainbows. If only I wasn't working!

jcyrhs: Cool, I didn't know that... a picture with good fengshui... I like it :)

shutteredeye: I'm still waiting on a ND filter, so it was as slow as I could get it... but slow enough nonetheless. The colour cast comes from my Cokin(not) neutral density filter. Usually it annoys me, but I liked the slightly surreal effect it produced on this image. Top marks for noticing it :)

Dougie: Yeah, I have to admit that after seeing your photos I was incredibly jealous and just had to get back up there :)

Im getting a strange desire to want to go here. It looks like a beautiful place. I really like the colours.

Mmmmm, as a fantasy artist, my eye is drawn to the sky: I want to paint some dragons to go with this. ;)
