Lost in this Landscape...

By Scottishlandscapes  
...not just a title for the image, but a matter of fact. My canon remote lead lies here somewhere amongst the tangle of heather, never to be found probably.
Lost in my haste to beat the weather back to the car.

I can sympathise Dougie, I once lost my canon remote somewhere on Bass Rock, and as I didn't have another that was that as far as using my tripod to take any more gannet photos!

It is a lovely landscape nevertheless.

Is that not it behind that bit of purple heather TongueWinkGrinGrin, usually lens hood that I lose.
Lovely big expanse of moorland leading over to the hills and mountains. Not sure if it is just me, but I have thought that the heather has been particularly vivid in colour this year. Well - in my neck of the woods anyway.

At least this image wasn't lost Dougie Smile I lost my cable release in the East River New York, there were plenty of photographic suppliers so I could replace it and it was cheaper !!!

Thank heaven for the 2-second timer!
Annoying thing to happen.
Good image though.

Yeah the two second delay is fine most of the time for landscape work.
Sadly my hand keeps going into thin air, no release there.

I hope the success of this photograph at least partly made up for the loss, Dougie. Beautiful, evocative colour against a unique backdrop.

A beautifully composed landscape with the primary focus being in the beautifully coloured Heather.

Sorry to hear you lost your bit of kit, I hate it when that happens. My insurance company hate me. I have lost umpteen lenses and a couple of cameras over the years...

Not the best vegetation to search for dropped things

Sorry to hear you dropped the lead, bit that once on a beach as the I had left it too long and tide was getting behind me. Grab everything and made it back less the lead.
You learn!
Good image Dougie

The proverbial needle in a haystack. I have left a trail of lens caps abandoned in my wake...
This captures the experience of walking on the moors, head down against the wind but not entirely ignoring the distant view.

I once lost a whole tripod in a place like this - not a hope of finding it. A beautiful image though Dougie and so typical of this area.

The important thing is that you got the image before the storm compelled your retreat, Dougie.
As your Editor would have said - we can get a new cable, but we cannot capture that moment again.

Another beautiful image Dougie of one of my most favourite placesSmile Shame about the cable release mind you any excuse to get one of those wireless ones Wink

Looking for a needle in a haystack comes to mind here Dougie !!
And have you lost a 58mm Canon lens cap too ?
I found one in the east end of Glasgow last time I was there !!

So evocative of Assynt with Suilven presiding over the landscape. Sorry about your cable release. A few years back Christopher and I walked to a fishing loch nearby and I sat in the heather for a while, then trundled off to the top of the small hill, and watched him (trying to) fish! After a while we turned and made our way back home, but before we'd left the area of the loch I discovered I'd lost my watch. You can imagine the panic - I'd had it well over 25 years - so we went back to the places I'd been walking and sitting and, after a while we actually found it in the heather! I couldn't believe my luck. Smile
But I digress - you really have captured the essence of the landscape here Dougie!
A lovely story Ann with a wonderful outcome, you were mean to find that watch, I have a feeling in my heart that the release will turn up somewhere in my kit or car, I have looked everywhere as far as I'm concerned, but lost things hide at times in clear sight. One day I'll find it. GrinGrinGrin

Awesome. Beautiful. Amazing...
Love this blooming wide wilderness, with the mountains looming in the distance.
Longing pulsing through my veins now.
