Why Go Here ???? duh !!!

By daviewat  
There is a thread at the moment here

http://www.ephotozine.com/topic/t-66046

Asking why bother going to Rannoch Moor !!!!!!!!


Well allow me to put my slant on it here please Smile


It is a place of such natural splendour and calmness that the photos you see are only a small fraction of the whole experience.


I think everyone should go there once, because once you find yourself unable to say travel, walk etc as you once were, And yes I talk from experience :-( you will forever be so glad that you actually made the effort to get there and breath in the wonderful air, walk the boggy yet satisfying bogs to get just the right position and you will always have an endearing and wonderful memory of the whole place forever.



So get off your ass and get there !!!!!!! Smile


There said now.



Tis is from my trip there last November Smile


I would give anything to be able to get back for a day and manage to walk about these stunning shores of the famous wee loch Smile


Dave


ps obviously there are many wonderful places suffering the same :-(

Cant read the thread at work but agree with your comments... and every day is different with the weather/colour/light... and as Andy says - so much more up there to shoot. ...Just watch out for peat bogs that try to steal your wellies Wink

I don't think I'll bother going to the Grand Canyon it's all been done before and I have a nice postcard anyway.
What the Hell was Ansell Adams doing in Yosemite all these years? photographing the light hitting half dome from a different angle and the colour of the light changing the appearance of the huge rock formation. Loads of us have a poster by the great man, but would love to go and visit this special of special place on Earth.
How dull life would be if we never wanted to put our own stamp on somewhere or something, never thought we could sing a song better than the last person.
We have some sad people in the world and they are entitled to their own opinion but don't spoil the world for a lack of imagination, get out there and do it, try your best, fail, try again.
I've spent a lifetime in photography and I hope I die trying to be better.
