Scotland really is a magical place and I was lucky enough to be invited up to spend a long weekend with friends in Aviemore right in the centre of the Highlands and thought I’d sare a few images from this amazing location. I am a Scot, from Aberdeen and I know the Scottish Highland pretty well having climbed, walked, cycled and photographed the Scottish Mountains for decades. I actually started photography as a landscape photographer and I first purchased a camera all those years ago to record the wild lands I travelled. This time we didn’t go any where remote and just had a very relaxing time in glorious wall to wall sunshine and short sleeves. In November!!
Loch Morlich bathed in Sunshine with the most beautiful of autumnal colours in the forests around Loch Morlich.
Looking towards the Cairngorm Ski Station in blinding Light. It really hard to believe how warm and still it was for November.
The Lairig Ghru. Probably the mightiest pass in Scotland leading to Braemar. It is an old drovers route and covered in snow for many months of the year.
The Beast! Jet the Lhasapoo leading the way as the humans take off more layers. In November.
Sunset taken from the ski station at the Cairngorm looking out over the Spay Valley. Aviemore is the light patch to the left and the Loch is Morlich.
Autumn Light on Loch Morlich looking back to the Cairngorms. The colours are so subtle and so amazing.
Similar to above but a darker exposure. The Cairngorm’s look so magical.
A perfect Autumnal day. Walking towards the Chalamain Gap.
Looking back towards Nethy Bridge.
