Buachaille Etive Mor - this mountain is an icon of Scotland and the absolutely stunning Glen Coe. The drama when the weather is poor has to be seen in the flesh.
I make no apologies for making a photograph of Buachaille Etive Mor as so many people have done before me. This place just begs to be photographed with a dramatic weather front. The pure enjoyment of being there, in the landscape, under this massive brooding 1000m+ mountain is an experience you will never forget.
It was raining for most of this shoot and I was having trouble keeping the Lee Neutral Density graduated Filters clear of rain spots.
I like the way the rocks in the foreground almost mimmick the fantastic shape of the mountain. Isn't this just the perfect shape for a mountain!
Unfortunately I had limited time to make an image so I had to say goodbye to this icon before the weather changed once again.
