I organized a photo trip with friends in the beautiful Scottish Highlands a couple of years ago. We spent one week in the Glencoe region and a second on the Isle of Skye. The Highlands are truly a photographer’s paradise. I relied mainly on the Landscape Photographer’s Guide for both regions to plan the trip, having bought the eBooks on LPM’s website. https://landscapephotographymagazine.com/category/ebooks
During our week in Glencoe, as the book suggested, we headed for Loch Tulla one day.
Arriving by the main road near the loch, I was amazed to see the layers of trees immersed in the magic fog and the layers of lines and curves heading to the distant horizon; all of this ended with a vast mountain wrapped in the fog and low clouds. I stopped, parked the car on the side of the road, set up my tripod and installed my long focal lens. I used a focal length of 128 mm (35 mm equivalent) to frame the scene properly. Finally, I overexposed by 2/3 of a stop to have a perfect histogram.
For me, the Scottish Highlands is a real photographers' paradise, even in moody weather.
