Glencoe

Took a day trip to Glencoe yesterday, leaving the house at 3am and getting back home at 8:30pm. Haven't really done any landscapes this year, since I was there at the beginning of the year in horizontal rain. So, out of my comfort zone.
All with the K-1. Using the 15-30, except for #s 3 & 4, where I used the 28-105, after swapping lenses for #3 due to excessive lens flare with its bulbous front element.

Beautiful, all of them and difficult to choose between them but I do like No 7 in particular.

What you need are lenses, more lenses, bigger lenses, better lenses, faster lenses, and when you have these, your pictures will be perfect!

That sounds like a real marathon, but a day you will always remember so well done. It looks extremely cold so how is it for driving up there in winter? Beautiful images, I especially like no. 2.

1 and 2 for me, although to be fair, that's a savage set, and they are all lovely.
I know what i like, If not always why.

A terrific set. The first is my favourite, but it is hard to choose between so many great shots.

Did you use a ND grad on any of these ?

Very nice shots Alan.

Particularly like the colour in No.4...real standout in the shots for me. Also really liked Nos 6 and 7...but they are all at least 'Good- V.Good'.

Much appreciated folks. Really nice when people are picking different ones as favourites. It suggests some consistency.

Rob, the main road, the A82 is kept clear. Unfortunately I didn't get down the Glen Etive road. Looked a bit dodgy.
Peter, I think I used a grad on the first one and the last three.
Brian, there's more snow today.

Beautiful shots, specially number 2. Few shots for me are a little bit tight, I will give them more breath. Remember it's only amateur opinion. All the best.

Great idea to just nip up there into the highlands. Lovely set. No6 was my favourite.
