Approach to Ben Nevis by onesh0t Approach to Ben Nevis by onesh0t
See the blog update from my trip to Scotland: [link]



I arrived at the Ben Nevis visitor's centre at 4:10am, just to realise the fog was so dense, that I couldn't find the sign to the path. So I stuck on some Radio 1 and waited for half and hour. It was not clearing at all. I thought I can't come back without any photographs, so I put my boots on and ventured into the fog. After about 30 minutes of walking up hill I noticed, that in fact it wasn't fog, but really low cloud in the valley. Above about 200-300 metres the area was completely clear and the visibility was excellent. This is a view of the valley I came from.

First off, this is beautiful! This scene could be something out of a dream.

I like how the sky and land mirror each other and go from soft to hard (left to right). The soft greens of the grass and the muted blues of the sky and clouds fade to the browns and oranges of the rock and sky on the right. I love that and think it really enhances the effect of your shot. I see a lot of panorama type shots where the photographer seems to think the wide angle effect lends to a outstanding photo in and of itself, but you have managed to bring this one to another level--so bravo!

I also think you did a great job framing the shot itself. I like to keep in mind the "rule of thirds" and you've done that both vertically and horizontally. I think that in this instance it helps the flow of the image and the overall impact. Well done! :)
What do you think?

Hi, we've just realized this was shot in Scotland(took us a while huh) I was about to move it to the featured folder when I realized, I'm afraid that we don't accept photographs taken outside Ireland, so we will have to remove this from the #irelandART gallery. Please take this into consideration when submitting in future, as we don't usually have the time to read the description on all submissions. :)

An absolutely stunning panorama. I love this shot for it's colours, it's carful composition and its mindfulness of rule of thirds for the ground, cloud, and sky.

It would have been stupid not to climb into the "fog" because of the great shot you did.
It is interesting to see the landscape you got with the Tokina 11-16 cause I'm looking forward to buying it.

Colors are interesting but I would have appreciate a little more of sky and a tiny bit more of land (the crop is for me a little too much).
Anyway that's a good shot !

Yeah, I was cropping this one pretty tight. Thanks :)
Yeah man, this Tokina is the sharpest wide-angle you can get for a crop sensor.
