Lone Tree - Glencoe

By wolfy
Finally after going up to Glencoe for about 6yrs now I managed to find this tree!! (Thanks to Jeanie for pointing it out on google maps for me lol)

The weather was pretty awful for the 3 days I was there last week, in fact this was taken as I was arriving up the A82 and was the best light of the 3 days!

It was sooo windy I was holding down my tripod to stop it from blowing away! Oh and thanks to Jeanie for reminding me to take my wellies to get down to this location, however for anyone else thinking of going soon, forget the wellies you need a kayak Smile

Spoooooooooooky!

Do't bother going down here again, the tree is well and truly blown down. It's been dead for a few years now and the last big storm just blew it away.

Another sad lone tree gone for good.
