Appin Rocks, Airds Bay, Lynn of Lorn, Scotland
I got back from London actually a day earlier than I had originally planned, well just after 10pm actually. i could see from the forecasts that there was potential for a shoot that weekend in Scotland.
Despite being absolutely exhausted (i was so tired my eyes were stinging) when that phone call came through from David, I knew there was only one place I was going to be the next morning - 'up North'.
It was a funny day, pretty unplanned but we took it as it came. Towards the end of the day we had a decision to make, last light at Glen Etive or move around to the coast, shoot Stalker and maybe a sunset at Appin.
Tails won and it was off to the coast.
We had been to Appin before but perhaps a little late as we witnessed a sublime sunset but without being able to find anything to make a picture. We got there a little earlier this time but again unable to find any real elements of interest.
I think it was the first time of doing any 'real' landscape photography for both of us for quite some time and we'd had a great day so decided just to forget the cameras and simply stand and enjoy what was happening around us.
Imagine the scene, I'm standing where this shot is taken from. David is where I am in this picture and it suddently dawned on me, theres the picture there !
i fired off a few shots of David we swapped places and he shot this one of me.
Get this though, Stanton shot my Nikon and in this pic i'm standing over his 1DS mkIII. Now there is a scene you wont see everyday ;-)
God, I love Scotland.
