I was ready! I was so so ready to take the shot that was on my list of must see and photograph spots that I had been researching for months for our Scotland road trip. And unlike my pointing the wrong way for the Sligachan photos which were up the road from here I was in the right location. Just two things weren’t quite as planned.
The photos I had seen showed the mountains being reflected in the loch. With the weather being so clear I thought I had this shot in the bag – not quite. While the sun was cooperating the breeze made the water ripple so no reflections. From the angle I had seen some of the other shots that had inspired me, I needed to get right down on the shore of the loch. That didn’t happen either.
There was a bit of a scramble down the side of the road where we had pulled over and I didn’t have on the right clothing at the time to get through some of the pricklier landscaping. But in this case I still consider it a win for getting the shot.
Notice the little buildings at the edge of the loch; right in the middle of the image and on the right in the cloud shadows. How’s that for perspective?
