As promised here is a clearer image of Ben Lomond as seen from Rowardennan. This is the last image from the Trossachs series… for a while anyway 😉
When I took this one last year, the wind was buffeting my camera so hard, it was almost impossible to get a decent capture. The hood on my 70-200 was acting like a sort of sail and the camera almost went for a dip in the Loch. A few days earlier I’d taken a tumble down a hillside on the trail at Queen Elizabeth Forest Park!* (Bruised ego but the camera was ok!) It can be a challenging and rewarding environment for a photographer- more than worth the effort.
(*Imagine that scene from Romancing the Stone, and the muddy hillside… only less dramatic! )
As long as the camera is OK, that’s the main thing 🙂
J’aime beaucoup tes nuages et l’ambiance que tu as créée avec cette photo. Superbe…
A fine photo despite all the adversity. The lighting and exposure are excellent.
Isn’t it amazing how we photographers can twist our bodies to protect our cameras during a fall. Glad both you and the camera suffered no permanent damage. 🙂
Great photo i like!
another fantastic landscape
oh that’s kind of sad. I find this beautiful landscape photos and I love to see them. but I’m glad to read that you and the camera was not damaged.
bien à toi !
Very nice panoramic landscape. like the hue color between the sky and the mountain.
What a superbly subtle image. I particularly like that unusual framing with just a touch of water.
You surely persevered! Gorgeous lookout , truly moving. I’m am also glad your equipment was not harmed; at least we heal!
I tried to comment on this earlier in the week, but y iphone wouldn’t play. I love the mountain tops
très beau paysage.
