Shadows of Glencoe by ArwensGrace Shadows of Glencoe by ArwensGrace
The dark,brooding mountains of Glencoe,one of the most famous sites in the Scottish Highlands.Scene of a great massacre between two waring Clans in 1692.

I visited this awsome valley a couple of weeks ago when photographing on the mainland.It was very windy on the side of the mountain and you felt the mountain's enormous power and presence...... as if it wished to crush you like a small stone under it's grey shadow.

This is a great shot, and I know what you mean about the overwhelming feeling of perspective. It's a wonderful place, and I used to do a lot of walking and climbing in Glencoe. The sheer scale of these vast mountains is awesome. :wow:

You have captured that feeling and sense of perpective very well in beautiful shot. I especially love the brooding colours. :D

I hope you are well Angie. :hug:

Take care,

Yan :)

It was the Jacobite War. The battle of Glencoe was fought between the MacDonalds and the treacherous Campbells.
I don't know if you knew that already, but it's true. Your photo captures the darkness of that war very well.
I'm proud to say that my own clan- the Buchanans- held true to King James even through Collodun. Come to think of it...do you have any photos of that place?

I have mixed feelings about places like this. It's wonderful to be in a place and know it's history and to imagine it as it was. The only drawback is if the atmosphere is so heavy and sorrowful that you can't help but feel it and connect with that past.

This looks like one of those places.

True, but the great thing about visiting is that you can connect and then withdraw taking just the memory with you of an amazingly powerfull energy.Those kind of things become part of your spirit and soul and give you more depth of character :floating:
