Glen Etive is a glen in the Highlands of Scotland. The River Etive rises on the peaks surrounding Rannoch Moor, with several tributary streams coming together at the Kings House Hotel, at the head of Glen Coe.
Opposite the Kings House Hotel on the A82 near Glencoe is the entrance to the glen and you are literally transported into another world. The single track road winds through Glen Etive for some 9 miles and most days I am there I see not another soul apart from the famous deer. I urge everyone of you reading this to someday take a trip there, a truly magical place.
Glen Etive was the setting for the latest James Bond movie, Skyfall.

Hello, you caught just enough light on the left side bank to add interesting contrast. Good point of view looking up stream. The image has an unspoiled, untouched look of wilderness to it.

I like this one too ! A very good minimalist POV, a good depth of field and a perfect soft light. I like too the contrast between cold and warm colours. Very good sharpness too.
