Lochan na Achlaise 2

March 10th, 2009

I had originally posted a shot taken from further out. One of the comments suggested that next time I make the long hike down to the frozen lakeside. I did, already! Hope you like the different viewpoint. Oh and any further suggestions to walk out onto the frozen surface next time will be ignored (smile).

Ziggy, don't you think an underwater point of view would be unique? (yuk-yuk) At first view I thought the orange color was primarily due to sunlight, however it seems to be the color of the earth or vegetation at the base of the hills/mountains. Is that correct? Thanks for the great resubmission.

A VERY constructive comment from ushercyber....you must have thought long and hard and analyzed the scene very carefully indeed to come up with such a well thought out comment such as that.

BTW...the picture is PERFECT, well done mate

It is a very pleasing photo... but I like the first one better.

I like both this one and the original. One has more focus on the icy water, and the other is more focused on the orange hills. Btw, ushercyber if you feel so strongly about the "ugliness" of this photo, you should recommend how the photographer can improve it. Ugly, after all, isn't very descriptive.

Wow. Been a while since we've seen a negative rating in the double digits. Well deserved though. Yet, somehow I wonder if he/she wasn't simply looking for the attention. Anyways, I DO like this take more than the previous version. Nice submission.

Thanks for the comments folks. In response to stubulman's query regarding the colour, it's a combination of both the light and the terrain. What you see is the last of the early morning light falling on the distant landscape. oh, and I'll bear the underwater perspective in mind for next time...hehe.

Joel, I didn't use a polariser on this ocassion, although I did have one with me (doh!). I remembered to use it later that day for some shots on Loch Lomond shore and it made a pleasing difference to the sky difference. Not sure it would have altered this particular shot significantly though but certainly something I'll experiment with if I revisit.
