Glory of the Glen

By Irishkate  
Taken in the same area as Loch Etive yesterday - as you can see we got a lovely sunny day
and people were having picnics.Despite the beauty of this area my husband cleared up loads of
rubbish left by campers etc. Unbelievable that people don't take away their rubbish.
I was thrilled that you liked my loch image despite it being the wrong time of day for photography.
Two of you liked it enough to give me their precious User awards - thank you Jim(canonfan)
and ****(Dickpics).

A lovely setting for a picnic, Kate, but what a shame people are so disrespective of their beautiful countryside Sad. It is far worse here, litter of all kinds and sizes dumped just anywhere. Carol

The light is wonderfully soft Kate. Good on your husband for collecting all the rubbish - I can't understand people's mentality.

Excellent light in this one Kate - rugged beauty.Smile
I too can't understand the mentality of the litter louts - wonder if they are as careless in their homes??

What a wonderful looking place......
And like yourself can't believe that people don't take away their rubbish
24 Feb 2013 9:22AM
A great photo, Kate with so much content to ponder over!
Should never be spoilt by litter which other people OWN and should take away with them!!

Beautiful lighting. So sad there are thoughtless people around. I always feel the rubbish should be dumped in their front garden. Paul
