Corrie an Lochain, Cairngorm. A trip to Ben Macdui was on the cards on a fine April afternoon. Returning to the rim of the Cairngorms northern corries at sunset. That was the plan. Lights winds in Boat of Garten but a gusty 50 by the time we get accross the lower face of the corries. We tuck in to Coire an Lochain for a cuppa ( I was really curious to see if the wee lochan was ice bound ) I set up the big tripod and then forgot about the wind.....engrossed in the image making. The tripod turned out to be a waste of time, instead relying on hand held with image stabilisation. We made our way up and out of the corrie then turned away to Lurchers crag where the wind was no more than a breeze. Great views up the Lairig Ghru to pools of Dee and down to Carn Elrig. Another cuppa then back down at dusk. Magic

Summer heights

A bit harsh perhaps after the long summer of '18 but I'm merely referring to me taking a summery image for a change. There's no storm clouds here, no mists lifting of a deserted moorland, no dramatic cascading stream.........Its just a nice, July evening looking over Nethy Bridge towards the Cairngorms with wildflowers and gently swaying barley shuffling around my legs . Normal service will be resumed soon ! "Summer heights" 1/10th sec @ F16.

Wind carvings

It`s not every day you get cloud free mountains in the Cairngorms. Okay, so it`s more challenging if it`s cloudy and breezy, but us photographers and outdoor types want to see where we are going and enjoy the views. Nowhere finer than Bynack More on a Sunny Sunday. A winter playground. At almost 1100 metres great views were all around including this image looking south to the Barns of Bynack and beyond through the Lairig and Laoigh pass. With the soul happily filled the 8 miles through soft snow, back to the car was pretty painless.

Arc of Triumph, Loch Morlich

It`s Autumn. Its windy and wet. But it`s fantastic for shooting atmospheric landscapes. I stood on the shores of Loch Morlich watching the weather play out from sunshine to rain and back again. A moment of magic, and all done in 1/160th of a second.
