I have driven past this Loch many times, though never in such conditions.

Sunrise, Loch Lomond

Having overnighted in the Lake District, I was up at frighteninglyearlyoclock. We passed through a fluorescent Glasgow listening to the strains of Jean-Michel Jarres’ Oxygene. Coffee. More coffee. Dawn was breaking as we reached the fringes of Loch Lomond. nd.

Unusually it was bright, colourful and calm. Swerving off the road and a wander down to the shore. This time the drive by glimpses of light and location paid off. The water was bathed in ripples of orange. Breaks in the traffic and the noise ceased.

Utterly tranquil

The M6 wasn’t quite so lovely at the time 🙂

Lovely, and brings back great memories of a very fine morning
