Glencoe by Greg-McKinnon Glencoe by Greg-McKinnon
Last week I made what felt like a pilgrimage. I woke at 4am and drove the two hours to shoot sunrise on roadside Rannoch Moor; Loch Ba and Lochan na h-achlaise. I had an amazing morning and got very lucky with weather and light. 

I took this image at sunset later that day at the entrance to Glencoe. It's an unbelievable landscape and I can see why it is so well photographed. Even so I didn't see another photographer during the 8 hours of daylight I spent there :)

I hope you like it, more to come!

Sounds like you spent a lovely day in a wonderful place. Well, apart from the early rise but I guess that was worth it. The picture is definitely beautiful.

Nice shot- is that all natural lighting/colour?

Thanks! I'm guilty of being a bit heavy handed on the saturation sometimes but I try not to change anything too strongly from how it was at the time. This is how it was out of the camera after contrast, saturation and sharpening adjustments.

Awesome, if they ever try to develop Glencoe or change it in any way I will buy a gun. This place drags us straight back into the past and reminds us of our heritage and the turbulant times that came before us. Anyone who wants to understand the Scottish spirit just has to go to Glencoe or look at your photos.

haha, I'll be there with you! You couldn't have said it better. Walking the old military road after sunset is nothing short of time travel.

Wow... If I ever had to go out to a desert this is just what I'd want it to be like- beautiful, with a stream of water, big mountains and great colours. Where was this?

I think I would too! It's the entrance to Glen Coe, just after Rannoch Moor in the west highlands of Scotland.
