In easter this year, I walked the West Highland Way in Scotland along with 5 friends. Of course, I brought my sturdy old a100 with me, and the trip didn't let me down on photo opportunities!
And the tales about the Scottish highlands were true as well; We had weather ranging from brilliant sunshine to snow storm!


#1 Good morning sunshine!


#2 Kinda sheepish feel..


#3 First view of Loch Lomond


#4 Loch Lomond on a sunny day (stitch)


#5 By the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond


#6 Don't wanna get outside


#7 Still standing


#8 Snaking through the landscape


#9 Bridge of Orchy on a cold evening!


#10 Walk on


#11 Steady flow


#12 Whadd'ya doin' here?!


#13 To the rescue


#14 just eat...


#15 evening snack


#16 shoot-off


#17 The crew - ready to go home!


It is a trip I will never forget, with awestriking scenery and great moments along with my friends

Overall great series. There were great shots and not so great ones. The not so great ones are #1, #2 (only barb wire), #6 and of course #16 . The great ones are #4,5,7,8 and #11 (very good!). Like it you complete the series with shots like the first, the deer and last. Thanks a lot for sharing

I know I would have spent a few hours on #9 looking for a perfect shot

Overall a good series. Seems like it was a blast to do. Great memories last a lifetime. TFS

Very versatile set of images. It looks like you had great time.
#1 nice idea - I would crop to lower half of the image
#5, #9, #14, and #15 are fine images
#10 I like very much for its feeling. I would also make a tighter crop here.
I love the idea of the last one and it would have been completely crazy with very wide lens having feet in focus and faces OOF.
Thank you for sharing.

Thank you all for the comments so far!

@rickztahone: I probably would as well, if it wasn't for a broken achilles, and a damn cold weather - we were all freezing so much, when we arrived at Bridge of Orchy, where we would sleep.. So i just took the photo, and got on with putting up the tent

@svjetlana: Thanks for the in depth comments! really appreciate them concerning #1, I wanted to include the shadow of the guy in the tent.. but yeah, it could be cropped up to the bottom of the tent.


I wonder if I should include more photos of the people on the trip? This became sort of a landscape-view..
