Ben Nevis

When we arrived in Fort William for a holiday in the early seventies we caught the train out to Glenfinnan and I shot this out of the train window. It was a bit dull and that is why I have turned it to B&W.as I think it does it more justice.

This was a Saturday in  early June, tomorrow will feature almost the same scene two days later.

From the early seventies?? It's majestic, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie, it's the highest mountain in Scotland, and I think the U.K., but a mere tiddler no doubt to some in the U.S.A.and Canada.

I'm really enjoying looking at these old scanned negatives - they have a certain quality about them that I like.
Ingrid
Brian Walbey: There is one more scanned slide tomorrow Ingrid and then modern images of Scotland later in the week. I am glad you are enjoying them, I will have to get some more done if time allows.
Once again, excellent scanning work here Brian. I like the depth of the picture! Well done.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, although it is a landscape I think it works quite well in mono.
It looks well in B&W Brian. Plenty of grandeur and very serene.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ian, because it was a dullish day it looked a bit flat in colour, hence the B&W.

B/w is a good choice, and it's a good on-the-fly composition. (I assume the train was moving.) (I get nervous shooting from moving vehicles.) It would be great, methinks, to see this larger in the minimalist format.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Larry, yes the train was moving at the time, I don't usually shoot on the move but it wasn't very fast.

Superb. The B&W is the perfect choice, and the composition is wondeful.
Brian Walbey: Thanks for your very kind comment Paul.

A cracking view; I love the position of the buildings and pier in relation to the great bulk of the mountain.
Brian Walbey: I was a bit lucky with the composition Alan especially as I was on a moving train.
