3 from Glen Affric

A grey day in Glen Affric yesterday, so no snow capped mountain shots I'm afraid, but here are some of my preferred images

Ice on Loch Beinn a Mheadhoin


Small waterfall


Loch Beinn a Mheadhoin


Old cottages at Fasnakyle


Thanks for looking

Re: 3 from Glen Affric

Nice set the cottages are best IMO and Loch Beinn a Mheadhoin is to be visited in better light

Showed my better half those cottages, she wants to know when we move

I really like the ice on the loch, lovely textures.

Very nice and it doesn't look too bad a day. (Its not raining)
I'd have liked to see some details/textures of the cottages. I can visualise Snaarman skulking about.
No. 2 is your (winter) take of a waterfall that I have just ordered a mounted print of by Laurie Campbell. His version is high summer with very lush vegetation and looking straight on but taken from further back.

Sorry I missed this Iain - you had a much better day than I had in the bathroom ! Your two images of Loch Beinn a Mheadhoin are excellent.

Re: 3 from Glen Affric

Nice set Iain,

I believe I know those cottages..... they are close to the road junction that leads to Tomich are they not ?

Also stood in your footsteps with regard to the old Caledonian Pine stumps.

Oh Bloody Hell please stop posting such images, I'm getting "Highland-Withdrawal-Symptoms" again

Next visit can't come quick enough.

Only joking about stop posting such images, please keep them coming as they bring a "warm glow" to my heart

Simon

Spot-on with the cottage location Simon, they have recently been surronded by a new fence that makes them less accessible and gets in the way of wider shots, but as Duncan suggested maybe I will jumpt the fence next time and go for the detail.
Thanks for your comments

Good call on the detail of the cottages - I'll have to go back!
It sounds like Laurie took his from the road! Is it viewable online anywhere?

Shame about the fence, I remember climbing over the old one on a couple of occasions to capture similar images. Don't know if I should have but I didn't think anyone would mind so long as I didn't trespass too far. The images are on film and I should get around to having them scanned so that I can share them too.

Just taken a look at your website, that was a mistake as my 'withdrawal symptoms' have just increased by a factor of ten

Kind regards Simon

Re: 3 from Glen Affric

Ian,
One of these days we are going to literally bump into each other.
I've photographed the Tomich Cottages a couple of times and I'll try and find the results.
Glen Affric is a source of infinite joy and photo opportunities. I can easily spend a whole fortnight just travelling in the road (a week each way) and getting more photo opportunities than enough.
Have you tried Glen Strathfarrar?
Anyway lovely images. which with you behind the lens we expect no less.
If I can find my 'Tomich Cottage images would you mind if I posted them on the thread?

Thanks Jon, please go ahead post your shots, but if they are too good I might change my mind!
Glen Strathfarrar is a favourite haunt of mine and I posted quite a few shots on here 'while you were away' (i.e. between E-5 and E-M5). I seem to remember Duncan (Wanderer) saying he could get winter access to the gate - not sure if we should try and organise something??? I have only been up there during the Easter - October public opening times.

Yes a really nice set of images. Not sure I'd want to stay in that holiday home though.
