Hi all. It seems like it was only a few days ago that I last posted, but I’ve just realised its been weeks! Where is the time going at the moment?
I recently took a mystery trip (I didn’t know where we were going until the day before) to the tiny village of Inveraray (population <600) and the stunning Loch Fyne, who’s sheer size only serves to make the tiny village look even smaller. Unfortunately my standard 18-55mm lens is broken, so I was stuck with my 70-300mm lens – not the best for landscape photography. Luckily though Emma recently got a really good digital camera. I’m ashamed to admit it, but her shiny new Canon Powershot point and shoot produced pretty similar results to my ageing Canon 350D. But I’m not complainig as I was able to get the nice wide angle results I was looking for from it.
These are just a couple of shots of the loch and surrounding mountains/hills. It’s a stunningly beautiful place, and we were lucky enough to get good weather on one of the days at least. Its the kind of location that looks just as breathtaking and dramatic in bad weather as it does good though. Walking along the quiet streets I constantly found myself looking around me; I could never get bored of the views there, mountains all around and the expanse of Loch Fyne opening up before you. This is the kind of photography I love the most, but my inability to drive severely limits my opportunities to get out there and take pictures of such amazing places.
I have some nice pictures of the village as well, so plenty more pics of the lochs and surrounding countryside as well as the villag to come, if I can manage to get round to editing them all!
