Great wee wander up the hills.

Nice to bump into Stevi who was also on a photography wander up the hills.

Happy New Year!

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year!

A wander along the shores of Loch Lomond from Milarrochy Bay on a dreich Sunday afternoon early July did not promise much in terms of photography.

While we were drinking a coffee in the car after our walk, the weather finally cleared a little, with ominous rain clouds remaining over the Loss Hills on the other side of the loch, finally providing an opportunity for some photography.

I just love this moody photograph that will most likely be in the shortlist for my best picture of the year. Not to mention that I am pretty chuffed with The Herald choosing it for the Picture of the Day on 29th July 2022, albeit cropped heavily to fit in with the paper’s format.

I walked up the side of Dumbreck after lunch, hoping to get above the mist. Halfway up I realised that the pea soup was still too thick, and with not having the energy to climb all the way to the summit, I decided to drop down into the gorge and traverse to the waterfall.

Doon the water

We decided to take a trip ‘doon the water’ after lunch on a sunny Sunday afternoon. After a nice drive along the Clyde and down the coast, with wonderful views across the water, we arrived at our old stomping ground, Skelmorlie and Largs.

After a brief walk to inspect the newly built flats on the shore at Skelmorlie, we continued our drive along the coast to Largs. The walk along the promenade and Largs Beach was brazing, but well worth it for the fresh air and stunning sunset.
