Loch Lee

By moiral
Afternoon all. A run up to Loch Lee this afternoon. The rain clouds in the distance soaking the lower half of the glen.
I wanted this clump of heather in the shot. Remembering my mishap with heather, in Glencoe a couple of weeks ago, I carefully climbed down the bank and rocks. Got down safely - my camera and tripod however, did not!!!!! Had left the tripod and camera sitting on bank till I got down. Crash, down they followed me, narrowly avoided landing in the water. Tripod head is now broken, and the attachment bit for the flash on the camera, now has a wee bent bit on it Sad. I hate purple heather Sad.
Have been missing recently, but will try to catch up over the next few days.

What a shame, Moira: photography can be quite hazardous on both equipment and personnel.
But yet you still managed a fine shot of this spot which I have not heard of, so now it's off to Google maps.

That's an excellent low pov, and lovely composition, Moira. The grey water matches the dramatic sky and they provide a wonderful contrast for the bright land. The vanishing point is on a third intersection, and the image is topped off with a beautiful clump of lucky purple heather.

The dramatic clouds are heightened by the splash of purple from the heather in the fg Moira, lovely.

You seem to be ill fated with heather but this is a great POV even though it turned out to be an expensive one. Lovely depth, nice composition.

A great scene and a good pov here - I am glad you are safe - it may have been an expensive day out but at least you have this lovely shot and three well earned UA's
Perhaps a touch to much of the Scottish nectar from the nearby distillery? LOLWinkWink

Oh dear, Moira, I thought purple heather was supposed to be lucky! I guess you'll be avoiding it in future...Sad A beautiful scene, though, and very nicely captured Wink
