Rannoch Moor and Loch Ba

Looking east from the A82 over Loch Ba is just as picturesque as looking west towards the Blackmount Estate, especially at sunrise. I have often made my way down to the waters edge in the dark, hoping for one of those crimson sunrises but I have yet to photograph one at this location

However, I find there is something very satisfying, crouched in the heather at the edge of Loch Ba, on a cold dark morning with a flask of warm coffee, waiting for the first glimpse of the sun. The stags roaring and rutting like prehistoric animals. The mist slowly swirling as the sky starts to lighten and the hills start to reflect on the mirror surface of the loch

The last photograph inspired this watercolour painting
