Loch Lomond | Sunrise

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

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

  • Morning light, Yorkshire. Interestingly I’m now visualising how an image will look printed when I make it. This is deliciously tough to print... all those shades from dark to light. Looks amazing on @fotospeed sc300

One of those dawns when the epic light was happening not on the subject I had in mind. Always pays to look behind you!

@LShepherdPhoto Yes it is very awkward to prevent slippage! Composition is a very nice mind bender to get it balanced; only one that really works along there
