    Nice weather up there. Are these recent pictures? Seems to be the perfect time for taking pictures at Glenfinnan. No tourists to be seen.

    Again, GREAT pics Mr. Frogwell ! Your last post inspired me to go out and fix some of the bikes in my shed.

    Ask anyone I can't even spell "motivation".

    Keep up the great work...No it must be a pleasure..

    I wish this guy would stop posting pictures. It makes feel so inadequate as a photographer. Nice job.

    Frogwell, once again you have posted great pics, to us Scots the Glen Finnan monument is sacred ground.
    I have been there last time was in 1990 or 91.
    Thanks again.

    Very nice pics! What lense/camera combinations do you use (I'm sure you've been asked this a million times). Do you use a fish eye and digitally correct?

    Also, I'll be in Scotland this fall. Is that a good time?

    Isn't that bridge the one they used to film the flying car scene in the second Harry Potter movie? Glenfinnan viaduct? Near Lochaber?

    Thanks

    Those photos are incredible! Were they taken with a digital camera?

    wow Frogwell - those pictures are great - excellent composition and they have an incredibly warm tinge to them... is that from a filter? That picture of the tarn with the snow covered peak in the background is just fantastic...

    could you, would you share with us your techniques and equipment used?

    I agree! very art-istic photography. Pleasing to the eye and the mind.
