|Kilchurn Castle, Loch Awe, Argyll|
A few weeks ago a fellow local photographer Ally Deans suggested a mid week day trip, as I had the day off I agreed to join him. We set off just after midnight so that we would arrive at Loch Awe for the sunrise. It would be a long day but one that would well worth it and it has given me the proverbial kick up the rear end to get out there when I can.

Fortunately the following week mine and Audrey's day off coincided so instead of spending a rare day together I headed off at midnight for Glen Affric. I am very lucky that she understands.
We had been to Glen Affric a few years ago however the weather was against us with the drizzling rain coming off the hills in fits and starts. This trip the weather was on my side to a degree. The beautiful sunny skies later in the day were not ideal for taking photographs;
I travelled far and wide eventually ending up at Eilean Donan Castle. The tide and light were against me at this point my only option was to start the long journey home.
So from now on with the days becoming longer I will be hitting the road in search of new locations at every chance.
