Buachaille Etive Mòr – Portrait

Buachaille Etive Mòr - Portrait































Another form Glencoe and the Glen Etive area.


I scrambled about for about an hour or so, “Finding The Shot”,  Jo and Stormy looking on disconcertingly as the midges swarmed and the rain fell in that fine but wettest of sprays… eventually she came and got the car keys and beat a hasty retreat back to warmth and comfort of the car…can’t blame her can you.

Being a landscape photographer is all about exploring your surroundings and hopefully presenting them in an scene where the customer (viewer) is presented with an image that gives just enough information but makes them inquisitive to want to see more.

Like this image if I turned 90 degrees to the right you would see traffic throbbing through the main arterial route into Glencoe and The North, it wouldn’t present nicely at all. Composition is king, after all it’s what attracts you to look at in the first place, shapes, colour, subject and an overall interesting scene.

I think this does all that and one I’m very proud of.

Steady day today, it is Wednesday after all, took Stormy out for a walk at 6:30am was cold but dry, hope it stays this way for the rest of the week, hopefully away this weekend for a shoot, thinking East Coast, Spurn Point for a sunrise.


Have a great day all

    Oh I really like this one Adrian…it’s impossible to imagine there being so much traffic nearby.
    I think Jo deserves a medal for braving the elements (an midges) with you…lol

      she does indeed, in fact it has cost me new wellies and shoes plus I’m buying early for her Christmas pressies

      and thanks you I love the shot too, it makes up fro the traffic flying by at 90mph

      Hows the weather?
