West Coast of Scotland
Just back from 10 blissful days in Scotland. It’s true you really do get four seasons in one day. Of course this is highly exciting (and frustrating) to a photographer. I toured the west coast taking in many lochs and mountains. The lighting proved disappointing on many days, very flat and overcast but there were a few opportunities to grab a couple of shots that I’m relatively pleased with as it was my first serious attempt at landscapes/seascapes. Of course I couldn’t resist a few well know “must take’s” including Buachaille Etive Mor at Glencoe, which seems to be everybody’s favourite mountain. I spent a few hours watching the light transform the view. I enjoyed doing landscapes so much that I’ve arranged to spend a day next month with Doug Chinnery and Anthony Spencer to master more landscape photography skills.
