https://flic.kr/p/zmuD9F | IN THE MORNING | ...this was the view. Spent 6 nights over two weekends last month at Lagangarbh (the white hut) beneath the Buachaille on a training course organised through the MCofS.  Waited for the sun to rise sufficiently to light up Stob Dearg and the grasses around the hut. Then ran away as the midges descended. Thanks for looking and for any comments / faves.

DEAD CALM - Not a breath of wind at all to stir Lochan nan Corp on the Bealach nan Corp with Ben Ledi behind. Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. Taken about 5 minutes after my previous image from a slightly different viewpoint.

https://flic.kr/p/yorcKs | WAKING THE DEAD | Wild camped on Sunday evening on the Bealach nan Corp (Pass of the Dead) between Ben Ledi and Ben Vane in the Trossachs.  Woke up to a clear sky with fog covering the plain of the Forth which was quite a sight.  This is Lochan nan Corp (small loch of the dead) with the rising sun on the slopes of Ben Ledi being mirrored in the lochan. There is nothing sinister in the name as the pass is an ancient coffin route through the mountains at over 2150ft…

https://flic.kr/p/xo7dUQ | DUMMIE RUN | Another from a circuit around the Cleish Hills on Saturday evening.  The north facing slopes are in deep shade and above the hill fort of Dummiefarline the sun has just set.   Over exposed this by +2 stops then manually blended in the sky from three further exposures in different amounts to preserve the highlights.     Thanks for looking and for any comments / faves.
