Snowmelt in Glencoe

Recommended Posts

Guest davepaterson

We've had a vigorous melting of snow in the past 72 hours and it has already gone from these hills in Glencoe, a famous place in Scottish history.

 

This was on a trip to my dentist earlier today; D800 with Zeiss 21mm at 1/640 and f8, handheld.

Well, it is April!

 

Nice shot of a nice place!

April, yes, but until the end of last week the hills were holding a lot of snow.

 

Thanks for your comments - it is a good place.

Makes me want to go to the dentist more often.

Well composed, pity the light is not ideal.

Perhaps that is a good excuse for me - I always remember these places as they look in Dave's pictures, but my own pictures never came close to capturing what I saw.  I was always disappointed with the colour falling flat, however, this was back in film days, so it could be my choice of film and reliance on commercial printing.   I did have one brief visit since going digital and found I could get some colour improvement even in less than optimal lighting.  Perhaps now I am almost sorted with a suitable workflow, I need to revisit my old negatives.
