Well it would have been rude not to!

Buachaille Etive Mòr

As the title suggest this is one of the most photographed locations in Scotland and Glencoe in particular, Buachaille Etive Mòr, pretty much a pyramid as viewed from the A82.

Other photographers would have you believe it’s a difficult place to get to, well it isn’t, its about 50m from the road side and there are tripod holes everywhere!. First of quite a few I did there, spent an hour trying every angle I could think of and standing in the rapid downstream. To the left is a 20′ drop of torrent so you have to be fairly steady on your feet when clambering about.

Particularly like the mist caressing “The Beuckle” as climbers call it!

One big thing to mention is the dreaded midges, I used a head net, you look a fool but it certainly works, since then I also discovered “Smidge” it’s about the best anti midge spray you can put on and it smells lovely too.

Wellies are a must too and I eventually managed to talk Jo into have some Muckboots so we went to Dumfries where I bought her some….she’s now a convert, gotta love em!

Ah well on with the week, busy doing prints for clients then it’s off to post my ABIPP Submission a whole 8 days early, I am very efficient aren’t I? Still gotta sort out my book print which should be sorted today too and I’ll have that in 10 days ready for December’s Assessment.

Have a great week all

    Hi matey, I’ve seen this shot many times in magazines I’ve bought. All different I might add, and yours is a different angle. I can see the Title and yes it would have been rude not to.
    Good luck with your ABIPP and the book assessment in December.
