    Lovely scenery, I may have been tempted to have cropped the 3rd shot though, too much of nothing in the top and bottom 3rds.

    Can't fault the others though, you're lucky to live in such scenic country

    I cropped it a little already but to be honest I havent sat down and edited these too much. Yeah it doe's have its plus side staying up here for photography and walking purpose's..........I cant think of much more tho!

    I really struggled with the white balance,kept getting lots of highlights.Also tried using Nd filter's to try darken up the clouds and the sky but with fog rolling in every minute and the wind howling there wasnt much time for arsing around. That picture was took about 2000ft up, Halfway up a munro(Group of 283 mountains in scotland over 3000ft) and not far away from the frozen pool was this poor fella!
