After the Harry Potter Train went by, I went for a stroll under the viaduct and found another composition. The fall colours in Scotland were incredible!

The Harry Potter Train, otherwise known as the Jacobite Steam Train, in Glenfinnan Scotland.

The Harry Potter Train was not high on my list of places to photograph in Scotland since I went for the dramatic natural landscapes. I drove right by on my way to the Isle of Skye.

But on the way back, it seemed like a convenient stopover point between Skye and Glasgow so I decided to visit after all. Had it been higher on my priority list, I probably would have arranged to be there when the train was travelling in the other direction.

To make the photo a little different, I processed it using Topaz Impression, one of my favourite plugins. I also added some sun ray effects. If you are curious, there are more examples of Topaz Impression on the blog:

We're on the road again! Our first stop this snowbird season was Cannon Beach, Oregon, where we had two spectacular sunny days. Now to explore some new spots on the Oregon coast. We've been back and forth here so many times it's hard to believe there are places we haven't been to yet, but Oregon is chock full of gorgeous beaches.

If you're planning a trip to Oregon, check out my 8 favourite photography locations on the Oregon coast:

The Fairy Glen, Isle of Skye, Scotland
One of my last photo locations on the Isle of Skye was the Fairy Glen near Uig. It’s a smaller and softer version of the Quiraing with rounded grassy knolls topped with it’s own castle — a rock known as Castle Ewen.

I spent a delightful afternoon exploring the miniature landscape. At least it seemed miniature compared to some of the more dramatic landscapes on Skye, but still it had much to explore.
