A few sunrise photos from down in the Allgäu last autumn. I wish I had done a time lapse of the fog as it cleared, was totally cool looking.
Loch Crinan in the south western part of Argyll and Bute, Scotland. May 2008
Been snowing the last few days, which hasn’t made my morning drive very fun, but makes for kinda cool looking forests. The clouds have parted in the afternoon making for some nice light on the fresh snow and giving me a bit of hope to be able to do some night shooting (with snow), but as soon as it gets dark, it’s cloudy again. So it goes in Germany…
Some twenty or so miles across the Little Minch rise the mountains of Harris. I was there once, on some journey years ago. For some reason the Hebridean isles have been on my mind lately. Maybe it’s because I haven’t seen any ocean since last July, the longest period in my life, so the idea of wandering along an empty beach with a cold north wind on some wild and rugged island on the edge of the world is like a dream.
A light dusting of snow fell this afternoon so I decided to head down the road and into the Veldensteiner Forst, of which I’m on the eastern border of. Normally the forests around here don’t interest me much, as they aren’t really ‘wild’ and are often plantations from the last century or so. But when a light snow falls it only reaches the ground in openings in the canopy, creating cool patterns of snow and green.
I remembered a road I had driven down some months back that had some cool looking areas with moss on the forest floor, opposed to blue berry bushes which seem to be more common but not as nice looking in the snow. The road is only about 5 miles away but it doesn’t really go anywhere so I never use it.
