Sorcha's Rebellion

Glen Finnan the meeting point of the 1745 rebellion and dedicated to Sorcha

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glenfinnan

 

Incidentally, if you were to turn 180 degrees you would see the Viaduct that Harry Potter's Hog warts express was filmed crossing.

This week will be "Scotland Week"

 

A massive thank you to Neal.

 

I was in computer Hell last week for 3 days! A company I use for e-mail diversion was hi-jacked and therefore my computer hi-jacked also. I'm not very technical when it come to computers at all but I managed to contact Neal through Shutterchance and tell him of my plight. Like a white knight and after a load of questions and answers, he managed to diagnose the problem and fix it for me, from across the other side of the world. Cheers Neal, a large beer will be bought for you in person, sometime in Feb.

 

All the best Mal

It is a wicked wicked shot Mal. Darn Ben got to comment before me. This is very important spot in the interests of me and I am honoured you have dedicated it to me! Thank you. I just love the heavy shades with the feather light tones. I will get there one day. Awesome work. ~S.

I see you are turning into Wikipedia like Sorcha, Mal. Lovely shot here and perhaps we can have the wiki photo replaced with this one. a very nice start to scotland week.

Regarding the help thing you were unlucky to get me before i cloned myself and moved my operations to Bangalore in India. So instead of a cheap chapatis and curry you are now committed to an overpriced western priced beer. Well no obligations there at all and looking forward to catching up in the new year.
Great image, Mal. I love how my eye travels across this photo.
You the one that helped Sorcha with hers?
and then there is Neal successfully helping you with your highjack!
Great community this is turning out to be!
I mainly like the amount of gray shades that we can see in the image!

That is a nice touch my brother. Sorcha evreyone loves you, much respect to both of you and much love.

That's a lovely one Mal ... Sorcha should be happy and not sad anymore... reminds me of the grat Ansel Adams pictures. Yes, yes.
hey mal,

you have outdone yourself on this one! this shot is nothing short of amazing. so serene and really surreal. not to sound cliche, but this does look like something out of a movie. did you use a filter, or convert this to mono?
It's very lovely view Mal..Great image.
i imagine if traveled there, hmm..it can be very nice wink
Regards.

epic man, just epic....8.5/10
hey mal. very nice. i like the b&w. i cant wait to see more. i am working on the hardest part of my family tree which is the scottish side (only cause the clan is so big) and my great grandfather was a harbour master in leith scotland. no where near this tho.
Mal: Hey Genevieve, the photograph on wednesday is a bit closer to Leith will be very familiar to you and your Great Grandfather will have sailed under it many times! My father was a sailor to and docked at Leith many many times. Thank you Genevieve. All the best. Mal

Long, measured intake of breath for this one. Instantly appealing; superb processing. Another masterful piece of work.

Thanks Neal, without whom we probably wouldn't have seen this.

Breathtaking shot Mal. I can't see how you could improve this picture
Hi, Mal
I Like the Picture and the place, and the idea about de scotland week.
I was in Scotland 6 years ago, and i try to put some picture and join to the scotland week, of course if for you there isn't a problem...
looks like all the pieces have been added separetly interesting shot Mister Scotish ! 2 thumbs up for Neal the geek squad smile
Superb.
Damn fine piece of photographic artistry young Mister smart!! Can I come up with some cutting, ascerbic comments I ask myself, well not really, the photograph is way too good for that! Oh hang on a moment, stop paying for photography lessons and get yourself on a computer course, it will be much cheaper than midnight calls to Oz!!
Superb work Mal. Many regards, Neil.

Supurb shot Mal. Were you hanging upside down rockclimbing on the viaduct when you took this shot? smile Such a great conversion to B&W, and made all the better with the history of the place. I want to go up there next year and have been keeping an eye out for places to go. Looks like this week I'll have to get me notebook oot!
Mal: Hey SL the viaduct is often climbed but too hard and dangerous for me! wink Mal

Good composition Mal. The hills are a bit dark for me but I guess you were going for sky detail here.

Very, very nice indeed.

Was it really 17 seconds?
Mal: Wow El, your sharp today but correct! For some reason when uploading the image the exif data was corrupted and it said unknown in all the boxes, so I manually typed in the values. I typed 17 secs instead of 7 secs. I've corrected it now. Very well spotted Eagle eyes! wink Mal
You hardly need my comment! Cracking landscape I like the tonal range you are a man of many talents.
it is sincerly one of the most beautiful view i ever seen in picture.
great!

What a magnificent view. I saw Charlie Waite's take on this view in his "Seeing Scotland" DVD.
