I organised a photo trip with friends in the beautiful Scottish Highlands a few 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 website.
During our week in Glencoe, on an image scout on the A82 highway, I spotted this lovely lonely tree near Argyll and Bute. It was beautifully positioned behind an interesting textured rock and isolated by the heavy fog.
I stopped and parked the car on the side of the road. I moved a few meters to compose the image, set up my tripod and fitted my long focal lens. I used a 114mm (35 mm equivalent) focal length to frame the picture properly. I overexposed by one stop to have a perfect histogram (ETTR).
I was curious to see what the rock was hiding in this moody fog, but I found little except a higher perspective on the empty landscape behind it. For me, the Scottish Highlands are a real photographers' paradise.
