Loch Lomond October 2012

Loch Lomond is one of those places we’ve passed many times (Usually on the way to, or from a Hebredian island) and we’ve always said “ we must visit one day”. Well we finally decided that we must actually do it, so we hired a camper van and set off to capture some autumn colour and we weren’t disappointed. Despite being mid October we were blessed with 5 glorious days that also gave us several great sunrises and a couple of good sunsets.

As landscape photographers, we often talk about the “golden hour” of light just before sunset, but the warm late afternoon light we got had to be seen to be believed. We often say we feel privileged to be in such beautiful places in such gorgeous light, but we truly do feel that way and to be able to record it for others to enjoy is always a bonus.

    To take advantage of this kind of light you ideally need to be in position, all set up and ready for your shots before the light reaches its peak. Professional photographers often get up really early in the morning when it’s still dark, so they can be ready outdoors in their pre-arranged spot as the sun rises. Unfortunately, there are no guarantees though. Cloud cover or haze can ruin the effect, but then sometimes you really do get lucky.
