A Sense of Scale ~ Glencoe, Scotland
Olympus E-30, Zuiko 12-60
This is part of a series of photos taken on the landscape photography workshop organized by Ian Cameron in Glencoe, Scotland (Dec 10-13, 2009).
We stopped by this lovely shallow loch as we were getting back to our hotel on the last day of the course. The sun was already low and this area was in the shade. You could see the trees growing on the opposite side of the loch with the rugged massive Glencoe mountains right behind. The sense of scale is quite dramatic on this place and by using the long lens while excluding the sky this scale is emphasized even more. From the few shots taken I liked the one with the splash of green at the bottom most.
You can find more information about Glencoe on Wikipedia: "Glen Coe (Scottish Gaelic: Gleann Comhann) 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. The glen, approaching from the east on the main A82 road, is surrounded by wild and precipitous mountains. Further west at Invercoe, the landscape has a softer beauty before the main entrance to the glen. The main settlement is the village of Glencoe."
