    @samkiller42 thank you for the kind words :thumb: I wanted to see how much colour I could recover from the RAW files and I'm very impressed with what the camera can do.

    I'm comparing directly with my previous "walkabout" landscape kit, which was a Canon 5D Classic with 17-40L lens. Obviously the full frame sensor has better IQ hands down, but the capability of the D7000 with 16-85 is nothing to sniff at (especially when you consider I got the kit for £275 on ebay, which is less than I paid for the 17-40 by itself lol).

    Yesterday I took advantage of a rare weather window in Glencoe, and I was extremely lucky to get the shots that I did. The D7000 has passed all my tests! Granted, it's no fun lugging a heavy DSLR up a mountain, but the payoff is worth the effort ten times over.

    Did some more processing today - another capture from the same vantage point. Seriously impressed with the D7000.

    Those shots reflect the beauty of the place. It's a place you can immediately fall in love with.

    Ahh, Lenny, you continue to convince me to go to Scotland, and I shall... One day.

    Anyway, back in the past:

    @samkiller42 it's incredibly photogenic, as you can see :grin: Honestly, I sometimes feel like a bit of a cheat posting these images. It's maybe 5% skill with a camera and 95% the natural beauty of the landscape. I went for a drive through to Ballachulish yesterday and the light was just -perfect- for atmospheric captures: a lot of low cloud, warm afternoon sun, and glowing colours.

    Wowzers Lenny.
    Despite my lack of driving license, i think a short flight and a train will still be a sensible idea next year.

    You can imagine just how scary Glencoe must be in the winter when you realise the eight foot snow poles lining the roads!

    It's a stunning place though.

    I climbed up the Pap while I was staying in Ballachullish. Beautiful photo.
