Photographer's Note

The place known as Rannoch Moor is probably the most extreme example of dependence between the weather and the mood of Scottish landscape. The unic charm of this area belongs to its surface dotted with innumerable lochs, lochans, peat bogs, and streams. It covers some 20 square miles at a height of over a 1000 feet of peat and bog for the most part, laid on granite. If you add spectacular mountains around that rise to over 3000ft then you get perfect place to explore and photograph. It is crossed from south to north by the West Highland Way, bringing its steady stream of weary walkers across this remarkable landscape. Everyone is spellbound seeing this spectacular place of wonder, one of the last really wild places in Scotland.

I was more lucky this time while driving the A82 road which crosses through Rannoch Moor on its way from the south of to Glen Coe and Fort William. The weather was very promising so it was enough to stop there and wait for a while for this lovely sunlight and shadows on the mountains.

Hope you like it, regards!
