Very nice Huw - all nice, but I like the last one especially. Has great depth to it.

The last one for me because of the monochrome sky.

I've searched for an Alaskan Brown Bear in the leaping Salmon photo until I'm cross eyed but I can't find one. Did you forget that all leaping Salmon photos are required to have an Alaskan Brown Bear in them? The only reason for the Salmon to be leaping is for a Bear to try to catch it.

Re: A few from a north of Scotland tour.

What I can never understand about the Salmon and all that leaping is why they don't just find a river without the waterfalls.

Or why they don't build Salmon ladders for themselves.




Actually, there's a few fish ladders around here, but built by humans to help the fish navigate dams and other artificial barriers.

Lovely shots Huw. I too like that last one best, probably for the clarity it has, although the warmth in no #3 is nice too.

I like the last one as well. It looks like it's been shot with some sort of filter. Has it?

Re: A few from a north of Scotland tour.

Fantastic set and a great picture of a leaping salmon. Many many years ago I was camping with the scouts on the edge of Loch Torridon not far from Shieldaig and we did a 2 day hike over Applecross pass. I distinctly remember the atrocious weather and strong gales and not seeing a single vehicle on the road. I can't even remember which camera I had at the time but I suspect it was a Kodak Instamatic and the photos will be buried somewhere in a box.

Thanks Paul, it was a scene just itching to be photographed (well actually I think three times) and this was my preferred variant.

Thanks David, crazy fish with a single minded focus that some might envy
However the sensible ones go another way

Thanks Phill, the Applecross Pass (#3) has a real majesty to it that is difficult to convey in a wide angle shot (8 mm with the 7-14 f/2.8).

Maybe this one does the scene more justice??

Thanks Jim, no I didn't use a filter, just a no strings attached shot with the E-M1MkII and the 12-100. RAW processed with Capture One Pro.

Thanks very much OM, it's a really stunning area particularly in half decent weather. One of our hotels was on Loch Torridon (for a couple of nights).


At the risk of milking the two trees theme here is another one from the same walk which I call 'Pine framed'

Great shots Huw. I bet you have a lot more to show us from the Highlands trip.

Re: A few from a north of Scotland tour.

Looks like you had some very good weather! I never got round to driving over the Applecross pass; nowadays I have a phobia for heights, so it would be a no-no for me!

Great reminder of the frozen north!

Thanks Steve, I have plenty of shots but I'm probably my own worst critic so I have been pretty ruthless with binning more than a few
There are some others on my flickr page though.

Thanks Keith, yes the weather was much better than was forecast which was a real plus.
The drive was OK over the pass (my wife isn't keen of heights either), just a little frustrating that some seem to think passing places are for parking.

Actually, the other way round: I didn't have a great fear of heights UNTIL I lived in Norfolk! Shippea Hill near Ely is all of three feet high.....
