Sunset over Castle Stalker ~ Loch Laich, Scotland
Olympus E-30, Zuiko 50-200, Hitech GND
We had a pleasure to spend an extended weekend (Dec 10-13, 2009) on the landscape photography workshop organized by Ian Cameron in Glencoe, Scotland. Weather changed on the day we arrived and stayed truly amazing during all four days. As Ian said "we were treated to some of the best winter photographic conditions I think I have ever had the good fortune to witness." There were six of us and we had lots of fun exploring and photographing Glencoe from early morning to an evening twilight every day. It just couldn't get any better ;)
You can see a stunning sunset over Castle Stalker - originally a small fort, built around 1320 by Clan MacDougall who were then Lords of Lorn - on this photo. We were returning to our hotel after photographing all day as the sky was getting ready to reveal this vivid mix of colors. So Ian decided to stop by the Castle Stalker to capture a few photos and I think it was worth it.
You can find more information about Glencoe on Wikipedia: "Glen Coe (Scottish Gaelic: Gleann Comhann, pronounced [kʎaun kʰɔvən]) is a glen in the Highlands of Scotland. It lies in the southern part of the Lochaber committee area of Highland Council, and was formerly part of the county of Argyll. It is often considered one of the most spectacular and beautiful places in Scotland, and is a part of the designated National Scenic Area of Ben Nevis and Glen Coe. The narrow glen shows a grim grandeur."
Thanks for looking!
