Winter Buchaille

Buchaille Etive Mor, Glencoe, Scotland.

Although it has been photographed a milion times and will certainly be photographed a million more this is one of the clearest crispest mornings I can remember for a considerable while and the side lighting does a splendid job of revealing the mountain rock face detail of this one of Scotland's most beloved of mountains. The simple dusting of snow on both the foreground soil which conceals some unsightly blemishes, the azure blue sky and icing sugar crust on the peak all serve to give this scene that little extra prominence for the classic shot.

New!! Photographic workshops and masterclasses updated in 2009 at TRANSIENT LIGHT.

Pentax 67 II ,55-100 zoom,Fujichrome Velvia
polariser set to half strength to prevent shadow block up and uneven polarisation and a 0.3ND grad to prevent snow burn out.

Truly stunning. Looking forward to the book coming out and learning some of the skills needed to produce images like this.

Technically amazing details and clarity... however, the passion and fully understanding of landscape subjects is something that pops your photography! Big Vote!
