150 Miles Of Scottish Scenery

Rab and I set our alarms for 5.30AM and met in Balloch at Loch Lomond. We waited at Luss for the sun to rise then proceeded to Glencoe, stopping off wherever the light or scenery felt right.

As a set these photos aren’t very cohesive, but it’s an accurate representation of the day. A peaceful sunrise with a hint of orange sky, followed by a washed out snowy, landscape, interspersed with strong gradients of the mountainous highlands. The light would change so suddenly, so dramatically.

As much as I love traveling (well, not the flying part), it’s fun, cheap and accessible to get outdoors in your own country and explore. Do it!

 
 

Storm Gertrude

I’m meant to be in Copenhagen, Denmark, but I’m in Glasgow, Scotland. Storm Gertrude messed that one up, so it’s safe to say we are not friends. Instead I awoke and drove towards Glencoe. Bad idea.

Mini Coopers aren’t designed for snow (I was skidding all over the road). As I turned to head back, I drove past another Mini in a ditch. I hope they are OK. Plenty of other cars had stop and were tending to them.

Needless to say, this weekend hasn’t turned out quite as planned! At least I still got to use my camera a bit.

 
 

Summer Road Trip To Glencoe

I set my alarm for the unthinkable hour of 5AM, but we had to chase the good light. Armed with coffee in flasks and half a dozen cameras, we road tripped to the Scottish Highlands while everyone else was still in bed. It was worth the 5AM rise.
