Great effort rewarded. I could never carry that weight up that Corbett or around the others. :clap:

Magnificent ! Read this the other day and have just returned to it again. Hard to imagine how you could ever beat such an experience especially in such a great setting. Am somewhat envious to say the least :mrgreen: :mrgreen: - cheers :)

Many congratulations - we also feel these photos are some of the best we've ever seen on WalkHighlands, or anywhere else... Fantastic stuff.

All the best,

Simply stunning Colla - many, many thanks for sharing - and stirring our anticipation when we manage to do these ourselves - shame it's highly unlikely many of us will experience the perfect setting you did

And it really made me wonder what goes through a dog's mind in settings such as that

Here's to your compleation - and hope the weather gods are equally kind

Absolutely amazing - some of the best inversion shots I've seen - making me very jealous! Did this round last year and was rather knackered having taking the gear round too! Wish we had experienced weather like you did - great report and well deserved winner :)
