Glencoe is one of Scotland's most famous glens, mainly due to the infamous massacre of the Clan Donald in 1692. Stunning scenery and very atmospheric. This was taken just after Cottage in Glencoe. Thanks for looking :o)

great shot overall Al - the colour, composition and focal clarity really stand out. the little details like the isolated trees in the lower left hand side really add to it. Shame about the road creeping in there but hey what can you do! :-) well done.

Very nice scene, it looks like a good dream. Very warm feeling to it, and it looks so clean and crisp. Nice colors, and great detail.

Very nice overall like Phil said. The general composition is the strongest point of the shot I think. Only one small thing except that road. I'm sensing some extra sharpening in some details of the shot, notably the edges of the mountain towards the sky. This could be a camera setting thing but it could be you did some filtering in the postprocessing. I'm not saying this is a big issue. ;) It's just my belief it would have been an even better shot without that little artefact. Anyhow. That lighting is spectacular! Thanks for posting. :)

Extra sharpening? Perhaps, but what does it matter? It's a great shot! Congrats.

Wow, thanks guys for the comments.
No extra sharpening in the image, it's a by-product of my camera, not sure if it's not set properly or just bleeds at some edges. No trickery of that nature, if anything it is minutely blurred. And I took a Volvo out :o)
I don't mind the road at all as i enjoyed travelling it so much that day :o) But I understand your point fully philc.
Thanks again for viewing and giving me your input.

It would be a sin just to avoid it in a new images gallery. Spectacular panoramic view, which for me is just breath-taking. I love the composition, with the sky clearance in the middle and the road turning in the direction of the mountains, which only makes them more impressive and majestic. Thank you!

What a landscape!
Beautiful image. I would have put in some more foreground, but of course, I do not know if that would destroy this scene.
Well done!

Powerful. How very small it must feel to have those massive cloud shadows pass over you in this gigantic place. Beautiful shot.

This picture is an unbelievable picture. The mountains almost framing this shot and the billowing clouds make this picture beautiful. Wonderful image!!! A 10/10 from me :)

What a cloud. It defines the entire photo. I can feel it over my head. I can can feel tiny drops of rain as it passes over. What a unique perspective. It's striking and awesome. This just blows me away. Thankyou so much for sharing. If Scotland is this beautiful, I must go visit.
