Aird of Coigach by Alex37 Aird of Coigach by Alex37
Very unusual for me to make what I consider to be a successful image around midday. Usually on a sunny day the light is too harsh. I guess in this case the haze and thin cloud managed to soften the light sufficiently that detail was retained in the shadows.

To the right Stac Pollaidh. To the left Cul Mor.

I think it came out quite well and you are right that the haze dampened the harsh contrasts.
Often I do see landscapes that look nice to my eyes also around midday or early afternoon, but the images eventually come out bad...

I love the sky!
