Beautiful scene and I love the contrasting colours. Must be a good place to walk. Regards Derek

Very pleased you like, Derek. Love your use of understatement too! This whole Glen Coe area is a sort of Mecca for seious walkers and mountaineers! Personally, I find it good for a gentle stroll followed by a few pints in The Clachaig Inn.

Best wishes, Brian.

Brian, while you went and puzzled over Manfred Anaconda, I took the opportunity of another quick butcher's in your excellent gallery and found this (not too hard - it was on the first page I came across). Very nice shot indeed!. Like. Best wishes, Andy

Touche, Andy! I've never heard of Manfred Anaconda and, sorry, haven't a clue what you are referring to. Maybe I'm too old. Monty Python's Flying Circus was a much-viewed weird comedy series on T.V. from 1969 to 1974, so I guess that was before your time and I forgive you. I implore you to watch the free YouTube sketch Monty Python - The Four Yorkshiremen. Chuffed you like this photo. It has plenty of flaws but I just had to have some photos of Loch Achtriotan in my gallery. It's only 5 minutes walk from The Clachaig Inn, so this summer I'm determined to get up very early and get some shots with, hopefully, magical dawn light.

Best wishes, Brian.

Brain, I don't know whether it's you or me that's being 'had' - in the gentlest possible way, of course! I can't believe you believe that I've never heard of MP so I thought at first that you must have been pulling my leg! So I thought I'd pull yours! It's quite funny actually, in it's own right! Anyway, I'm off to the M of S W (early episode) so must be off (I have to untwist my legs each morning before I leave - this 'leg-pulling' helps!). Have a good day! Best, Andy

Andy Rodker on February 28, 2012

Actually, having re-read all this nonsense ( :o) ) I realise that the fault is all mine for the peurile joke of pretending that I had never heard of MP. BIG-TIME SORRY!!!! Yours, still trying to untwist my legs, Andy

brian gillman on February 28, 2012

Ah well, Andy, just goes to show how trusting I am. Actually, I was lying in bed last night and out of nowhere I thought, hang on, Anaconda > Python - they are both some kind of snake!! Oh - I GET IT! I immediately regretted all those complete strangers I had rushed up to in the street, saying "Would you believe it?! I've met a chap whose never heard of Monty Python!!". Anyway Andy, I don't mind a bit of leg pulling at all. After conversing with our fellow Panoramian, Scally, I've got used to it. And, as you say, it's become quite amusing of itself.

Best wishes, Brian.

PS. Duh. I've just realised M of SW is Ministry of Silly Walks. That was another great sketch!

Brian.

Andy Rodker on February 28, 2012

And also Keepclicking with whom I have had occasion to banter some pretty inane stuff with! For one dreadful moment last night I suddenly thought you might have taken offence at my leg pull. but I am glad that does not appear to be the case! best, Andy

brian gillman on February 28, 2012

No way! No problem! Please continue!

Brian.

Andy Rodker on February 28, 2012

Ok! But as I have that 'in writing' from you; on your head be it! LOL! (as it would appear to be in the common parlance). Best, Andy
