Loch Lomond

Loch Lomond

The view across Loch Lomond to the snowy slopes of Ben Lomond was the first sign of snow we spotted :-)

Midges are my abiding memories of Loch Lomond but not at this time of year. It makes me itch to think about it.

Wow! As in "me and my true love will never meet again, on the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond?"

Such beautiful landscape. For a second there, I thought you were talking about the town of Ben Lomond not far from here in California.

I wish I would have time to visit the Island of Skye when I visit Scotland next year. Too little time to see everything. I'll just have to plan another trip!

Beautiful!

Snow! Oh no! Apparently it is going to snow on Thursday! I'm taking the opportunity to wear layers of non-corporate clothin to work in the excuse that I have to circumnavigate London later that day for my exam.

Sorry, I digress.

I looked up Loch Lomond on a map. It looks massive!!! It looks ot be the biggest lake on the British Isles to me. Your photos are stunning, as always.

I love how it has stuck to the mountain and looks defiant that it won't be moving. Great shot John

Ah Loch Lomond, a truly beautiful part of Scotland.

A few years back I had the pleasure of camping by the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond and I will never forget the views, the fresh air and telling myself that I will be back again...

John, here to answer your question about the shot of the full moon. I got it with my 1500mm. I was in manual mode:AV,F:8 and ISO:200.

It was a very lucky shot because I don't have really good tripod and I am very leery of using it with this lens. I'm afraid it will topple over and I can't afford another 1500.

I still can't believe I was able to hold that heavy lens steady enough to get a clear shot.

Now to the Loch, oh how I do wish you would visit Wordsworth little home someday, while in Scotland and get some pictures.

Pam brought home a few and they were very nice. But, they were simply tourists shots. I just know you could grab some real beauties.

I love your Loch shots above too. But, I think I already said that. I always love your photographs.

Jackie:-)

Nice blog with nice photos

What beautiful photos! How great to have the photo oppotunities. I would have to travel far and wide to find such interesting subjects. 3 years ago I did a 3 week tour of England and Scotland....it rained the entire time but it was still wonderful there.

Shinade said...

These shots are just so so peaceful. I need peace today. Thank you!

Rylos said...

I like how the trees frame the lake. Excellent work!

Nice photos, Ben Lomond is a mountain that has defeated me once early in my hillwalking career when my mountaineering mentor made a bad decision to climb in snow above 1000 ft. A large cloud came across and we had total whiteout !
I have a few photographic posts on my blog if you are interested.... labels and september posts for "Ben Vorlich" and "up to Scotland (Luss and Loch Lomond)".
Great blog you have here by the way.

Gorgeous snow covered mountains! Love them :)

Breathtaking photos. So calm and serene. I love them:)

Mummysquared said...

Lovely photos of beautiful places... but perhaps you might want to re-name your blog? British wilderness may be more fitting? Not to be too patriotic ;)

Nice to find you
