Sleeping Giant

The last day of the dry season in Scotland this spring ;-) The following 3 days Glencoe showed itself as I had anticipated, grey and rainy, but with spells of sunshine during day which was kind of nice.

 

This evening was awesome, such a calm mood, beautiful color, all came together as I had hoped for during the day. Here it was good to have my hybrid shoes with me since the water I was wading through had kind of a slippery ground, not what you like on your bare feet... On the other hand those hybrid shoes where stinky for the next couple of days then ;-) I searched for some nice foreground rocks to balance Buachaille in the background, the reflection did the rest to fill out my foreground. I think it all fits in quite nicely, the clouds showed a beautiful diagonal throughout the picture and all kind of points to Buachaille.

 

This was shot using a Lee 0.6 hard GND + a hoya hd polarizer which was turned to maximize the reflection.

 

cheers
