No.2, just a record shot for me - a look where I went image - not that there's anything wrong with those. No.3, Steve has bought the Old Man out a bit better but greenery in the original is more accurate as I remember it. Deep verdant greens of wet grass infested with mossy growths become almost iridescent in a little bit of low sunlight. This is a place to visit outside of the Tourist season when the solitude can be experienced. Catch the light and you could indeed be forgiven for thinking you are entering Valhalla.

Thanks John, for commenting. The greens are hard to render, they are so delicate and they change with the light, so they were different every few minutes this particular day.

You captured mood and magic, even with people. I like how quickly the fog/clouds seem to change. This is the kind of place where one would need to sit for hours and take hundreds of shots each telling a different story, each like a different expression of mood in a face.

Thank you Piet. The "Old Man" changed expressions several times while we were hiking up to it. It's hard to explain how mercurial Scottish weather is in the Hebrides but it was overcast, sunny, rainfall all minutes apart.
