The first view of Glencoe for most people will be of the dominating and impressive peak of Buachaille Etive Mor – The great heardsman of Etive from across the bleak expanse of Rannoch Moor.
Long exposure : 125 s

We’d been encouraged south from home by a forecast for more snow and were not disappointed as we came though the Glen before first light. Feet of snow lay roadside and blanketed the hills.
Thick ice ringed the river and the place looked a treat.
The light began to grow, but it was not until the sun was up that we got a little bit of colour, which created the cool to warm contrast I had been hoping for.
I write educational material for creative and expressive photographers. We run small group Photo Tours & Workshops locally here in NW Scotland and in Iceland.

Having previously been to this location on the very first day but with horrible weather and light, I knew I needed to get back here to try and get a ‘yeh, I’m’a hang it on the wall!’ effort. It’s really easy to get to this viewpoint – just as you turn off the main road by King’s Hotel and start heading towards Loch Etive along a single track road, there’s 2 little parking spots either side of the very first bridge you come to. It’s not in view as you park so you’ll just have to scramble up a little embankment and then across a marshy field (or at least it was for me at the time) to get to this waterfall.
As with every other day, the weather was very changeable so it was back and forth to the van to hide from the heavy rain and then set up again waiting for a little window of good sunset light.
