Just back from a couple of days camping down in the Glen Coe area. Vet said Yana would be OK with antibitoics so she and Max (our other cat) were able to go to the cattery, which left us free to go away for a few days while I'm on leave.

It rained most of the time we were away, which wasn't the weather we would've chosen for our first trip out with our new camping gear. Ground was very boggy, which made finding a dryish spot to pitch the tent very difficult, and weather meant we couldn't take many photos, but we enjoyed it all the same.

This image was taken on our way back down to Kinlochleven yesterday. Wished I'd taken this shot looking out over Loch Leven on the way out on Tuesday, but we were keen to get on so I decided to get it on the way back, then found it was totally grey with no visibility at all on the return trip. The cloud lifted and the rain became light drizzle for a short period as we were on our way down the hill so I grabbed a couple of shots, more as a record of our trip than anything else.

Hoping we may manage another trip before I have to go back to work on Monday.

Shame about the weather you had, yet you have managed to capture a very atmospheric image courtesy of the cloud sitting down on the tops and in a view (from a viewpoint) that I have never seen before.
Nice contrast between the brighter f/g and the heavily shadowed hillsides either side of the Loch.

Like the view point here Sue and good details and moody sky. Certainly was a wet week and the glen was very boggy too.
Regards Richard


Terrific view point for this moody, overcast landscape.


The weather may not have been kind but you have captured some mood here Sue.


Yes, shame about your weather, Sue, but still a great shot here with that omionous looking sky - you certainly look to be high up Smile

Lots of mood and lovely brown tones. You've made the most of the weather. Nicely done.

Still a excellent view Sue and we well captured



A wonderful scene captured here Sue. I can only imagine how great it would've looked when the weather was better. I've done it myself, leaving a shot til later because I wanted to get on, and then regretting it. A valuble leason learned I think Sue Smile
Hope you have better weather if you venture out again.

In spite of the low cloud, you've got a stunning image here Sue - great clarity and composition. It looks like the sort of weather I had when I was walking the West Highland Way and we stayed one night at Kinlochleven: it poured stair rods and my friend and I were soaked to the skin!
