Buachaille Etive Mor

By WeeGeordieLass    
The River Coupall flows by the side of "The Buachaille" and photographing this scene was high on my hit list of locations to shoot.

We parked our motorhome in a wild camping spot nearby and as I listened to the rain hammering down all night I thought my chances of getting some nice light the following morning was zilch, wrong could I be!

Out of bed at 5.30 am, I arrived on location during twilight. The sun hadn't yet risen, the rain had stopped and morning mist was skirting the base of the mountain.

There was only me, the mountain and the river which was flowing in spate. One of those times that will remain in my memory when I think of our Scotland Road Trip.

This is what I saw that morning and I hope you like the scene too.

Thanks for looking
Elaine Grin
