We followed this grassy path around Loch Leven to see a stunning view of the sun setting behind the mountains in the distance. It was a lovely little walk, and completely unexpected. Don’t you find that those are the best moments? The ones we’re not expecting.
The landscape looks a bit mystical to me, it has a fairytale-like quality. But I can’t quite put my finger on why! The colours throughout our trip to Scotland were just incredible. I couldn’t get enough of the yellows, browns and oranges that seemed to be in every direction.
I’ve just finished reading through Scotland’s Mountains, a landscape photography book by Joe Cornish, and it’s made me eager to explore further west and north into the highlands. Especially the areas around the Isle of Skye which we didn’t make it to on our first visit.
On a very different subject, I’m keen to try out Photomatix some time this week. I’ve gathered that you can use it to create an HDR image from a single RAW exposure. So I’m interested to experiment and see what the results look like. If you have any tips please let me know!
Have you ever visited the Scottish Highlands? Which were your favourite spots? What’s the most colourful landscape you’ve seen? I’d love to hear from you!
