The Scottish Highlands

In the summer of 2012, my family drove up to Glencoe and were swept away by the grandeur and beauty of the Scottish Highlands. It was early March, but the snow-capped mountains were a sight to behold.

We started from the city of Glasgow and drove up the A82 through Loch Lomond. It is a very scenic route and there are plenty of spots to stop and take in the wonderful sights.

The Bagpiper

We met an interesting character on the way. A bagpiper in full traditional Scottish gear playing a bagpipe in the pouring rain! You cannot get a more authentic Scottish welcome than this. The chap had a very nice trailer parked nearby and this is where he lived.

We stopped by a river to take a few photos and stumbled across a beautiful waterfall. What better scene for a long exposure shot?
