The photo has been shortlisted for 'Landscape Photographer of the Year', but I am not that confident myself. 10 minutes after the picture was taken we were completely enveloped in thick mist.

Looks pretty awesome to me. Moving up to Edinburgh in September and looking forward to getting some of that action...

Excellent photos, Sean. B&W works really well, gives them a real timeless, Alpine quality.

Excellent I hope it snows like that next Feb.

Can we vote for it then, or is it judged by a panel. This is a stunning image, it embodies many things about why I make the drive north in Winter.

As far as I know, a group that includes Charlie Waite who first thought of the competition. Just so long as one of the others is not Jo Brand!

I really like it, scale drama, everything.
It's odd though this LPOTY thing - the images of mine that have been shortlisted were not ones that I think were the strongest submitted - they perhaps had something a bit interesting or quirky about them though. Good luck with it!

The photo that won last year was very peculiar. Taken from the Quirang, the horizon was not only not horizontal but also slightly curved. The Isle of Skye appeared to have an quite an alarming tilt as if slipping off the edge of a flattish earth!

I love this photo!
