A Fairytale Feeling In The Scottish Highlands

Lochside, Loch Leven, Scotland

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.

Sunset Over The Loch

Sunset, Loch Leven, Scotland

While road tripping around Scotland we were lucky enough to see a beautiful sunset just after we arrived at Loch Leven. There was a nice short walk along the water outside our hotel, so we took a stroll before settling in for dinner. With a brisk chill in the still autumn air it was a lovely evening. As we wandered further around the loch one of the most colourful sunsets I’ve seen began to paint the sky with oranges, pinks and yellows. It complemented the landscape perfectly and was a great way to end the day after a long, scenic drive up from Stirling.

This shot was taken using my old Panasonic TMZ6 with some fairly heavy adjustments to the shadows and highlights in Lightroom. I’m looking into getting some videos up in the new year to show some of my post-processing because I always think it’s really interesting to see the tools other people use. If you know of any good recording software please let me know!

Horse Guards Parade, London

Looking across the Horse Guards Parade near St James’s Park, this shot was taken while I was visiting London a few weeks back. I’ve really grown to love this style of shot, I think the perspective from the floor is really powerful. I’ve no idea what this building is called, but it houses the Household Cavalry Museum. Maybe that’s the whole building? Who knows!
