Buachaille Etive Mor

Nikon D70 @ 10mm, 1/6 sec, f/22, ISO 200

I see that yesterday's post didn't go down so well, so I offer you a landscape from Glencoe.

The lighting was quite tricky on this one, but a 3 stop grad ND seemed to do the trick. This was actually one of the first scenes that came to mind when I bought by sigma 10-20 and again, I'm very pleased with its performance.

Haven't managed to shoot in a few days and am certainly feeling the itch. Must... get... out...!

unbelievable! What a landscape! the mountain in the background provides a mysterious feel to complement the dynamic punch boosted by the gushing waters. The vegetation and the purple skies complete the entire photo. Only thin is that the lens distortion from the extreme wide lens make the photo seems alittle slanted which disturbs me a little as i admire the many wonderful elements pieced together. =)

if you don't fall and scrape your...uh...camera, you don't improve (in reference to your offering of today's post in place of yesterday's). So keep the experimentals going. Enjoying your blog very much. Thank you for spending your time updating it for all of us.

Gorgeous! I love the sky, the colours and the perspective. Just beautiful :)

I met Colin Prior today - if he needs a protege he should look you up ;)

jcyrhs: Thanks for your great critique, really appreciate it. The funny thing about the 'purple sky' is that it's really a result of Cokin ND filters having quite a strong colour cast to them. So much for them being neutral! But I actually quite like the warming up effect they have on many landscape shots.

anon: Thanks! Although I think I must have offended my commentators - they all seem to have deserted me!

Jem: Thanks Jem :) Oooh, Colin Prior... the man himself. That must have been quite something... very inspirational I'm sure. I'm very jealous :)

Do you not shoot for yourself? When you shoot for what you think people like is when you start losing your self-expression.

I do like this image but it's not the best one I've seen of yours.

Lovely image and location. I'm up in Glencoe for a week of nothing but photography towards the end of March (on my own too!). I've been there before but had a bit of trouble finding really good locations like this one. Where exactly is it in relation to the A82? Is this the river Coupall or another? Cheers.
