Todays archive post is of a shot that had lain forgotten on my hard drive until today. This lone, dead tree has been photographed many, many times before. If you catch it in the right light the results can be very pleasing.
After yesterdays post of the classic Buachaille shot, I thought I would post one from the other direction. This is a panorama taken from along Buachaille Etive Mor looking back towards Stob Dearg. From this direction you can see why it is called Stob Dearg (gaelic for ‘Red Peak’)
Todays archive post is of Buachaille Etive Mor. The mountain is really called Stob Dearg. Its the whole ridge thats called Buachaille Etive Mor, but Stob Dearg (gaelic for ‘Red Peak‘) ic commonly known as ‘The Buachaille’. Now thats sorted out, this is probably the most photographed location in Glencoe. Theres a well worn path to this spot, and place your tripod in the holes left by countless other tripods for the shot. It doesn’t make it a bad shot, just a overused one. In fact it’s part of a Scottish landscape photographers right of passage to recreate all the classic shots in Glencoe.
