I’m back. Did you miss me? =D
and I had a truly wonderful time in Scotland. One week in Glencoe, one week on Skye. The Lisabet Blessing was on our side again as the weather, 95% of the time, treated us very well… and even when it didn’t, it still proved advantageous.
Which links me to this shot. Welcome to Glencoe! This composition was taken off the Glencoe Pass, right at the Glen bottom near the Old Military Road. The mountain you can see is the third of the Three Sisters of Glencoe, known as Aonach Dubh (892m/2,927ft), which means “The Black Ridge”, pronounced as OO-nakh-doo. In actuality, it’s just a ridge rather than a mountain in its own right, jutting north from the main massif belonging to Bidean nam Bian (1,150m/3,770ft), meaning “Peak of the Animal Pelts” or “Peak of the Mountains”, pronounced as bit-yan nam BE-ahn. We had been scouting around the feet of the Three Sisters in the rain, looking for compositions and interesting routes. As the rain finally started to calm down, and the cloud cover lifted from the peaks, the sun was allowed to break through to the west, illuminating the glen and casting glorious colours everywhere. This is a stitch of two landscape shots, each consisting of three exposures, so that I could get all of Aonach Dubh as well as these lovely pink flowers near the river. =)
