I’ve gone way back in the archives for May’s Print of The Month, in fact to Autumn 2007 with this image which is one of my all-time favourites and also one of the best sellers on the website. The weather throughout the day had been “dreich”. For those of you who are not familiar with this Scottish term, it means a combination of dull, overcast, drizzly, cold, misty and miserable weather. I believe that at least 4 of those adjectives must apply before the weather is truly dreich.
I had spent the day driving around Loch Leven looking for suitable opportunities without any success but before giving up for the day I went back to one of my earlier locations. Fortunately, my patience and perseverance paid off when for a brief moment the sun managed to break through the clouds and with almost perfectly still waters in the foreground I managed to capture this image against the stunning backdrop of The Pap of Glencoe which lies at the western end of the Aonach Eagach ridge. The Pap has a distinctive conical shape particularly when viewed from the west, and forms part of the “classic” view of the entrance to Glencoe.
