A visit to Kenmore on Loch Tay.

This autumn view is in another of my favourite areas "Breadalbane" Perthshire looking down onto the east end of loch Tay and the village of Kenmore.The backdrop is Drummond hill where there is a forest walk and viewpoint with another good view of the village.

A bit of a hastle in glencoe.

 Another of my absolute favourites which also gave me great satisfaction when I saw the results especially after having gotten myself into this hole along with gear and heavy tripod.It was late afternoon light that caught both waterfall and cliff-face,and combined with a slow shutter speed I achieved this shot.Getting out was another story though.

Oban at Night

I always believe that oban becomes a more vibrant place when lit up at Dusk,for example the tower is almost hidden amongst the similar coloured granite houses in daylight,whilst after dark it becomes the symbol of Oban glowing in the night sky like a beacon.That is why it must be floodlit at all times.This has not been the case ie for the winter festival display,Its oban,s eiffel tower,its oban,s whitehouse,the sydney bridge,its obans blackpool tower,it represents Oban!!
