Argyll & Bute: Saturday 5 May (365.360° Day 286)


Me and my friend Iain woke up ridiculously early (about 3:30am I think it was – yeah, eugh) to drive an hour and a half north of Glasgow for sunrise, kicking off a couple of days’ landscape shooting in the Highlands.

It was well worth the early start – even though the sunrise wasn’t perhaps that epic (and it was freezing – it started snowing at one point) we still got a good few shots in at Rannoch Moor then headed to the River Etive – an area we’ve shot before and were keen to revisit.

After shooting some falls and relaxing in the glorious rays, we decided to pop up to Oban for a burger and a pint in the sun – which was about as perfect a Saturday afternoon’s activity as you could wish for (Cuan Mor dish up a mean burger!) 

Replete, we headed back to Etive for what promised to be a belter of a sunset. Alas, it was not to be: we just couldn’t seem to hunt down a decent vantage point to see it. We still got a few shots of the river – after having to negotiate a somewhat treacherous damaged wooden bridge (bit scary!) – before we wrapped up a long, productive day by pitching the tent, ready (ish) for another early start. All round, a really, really great Saturday.
