Beautiful Day
« on: April 18, 2021, 07:00:57 am »

During this second lockdown across Scotland, this location which is a favourite of mine, is just a couple of miles past where we have to go to do our weekly grocery shopping, so I thought what the heck, it's a beautiful day and I want some exercise, so why not go for a walk with my camera?

Yes I have shot this scene many times before and also shown several versions of this view on this forum before, but when it looks like this, then how can I stand in front of a view like this, without wanting to shoot it, endlessly???

I sometimes feel the jolt of joy just by hearing the sound of my shutter. Let alone in front of a timeless beauty.

Superb, clean, cold and calming. The shape of the cloud on the far left is very similar to those of the hills.
Beautiful shot!

I wonder how many people have such nice views when going out for groceries!

Wonderful.

Me too Slobodan, me too  ;)

Thanks everyone, you do keep making this old codger, a very happy old codger  ;)

Yes Paulo, this is indeed only a few miles from where we go to do our weekly shopping, so yes, what a lucky photographer I am, but that was the number one reason why we moved here in the first place, because it's just so gobsmackingly beautiful and photogenic. Although I must admit, it does still make me feel quite humble and thankful every time we go out to gawp at it all, and even after living here for ten years, it still has the power to take my breath away  ;D

Yes Ken the time is just right, all the lambs are being born (as of today) and springing all over the place, the Cuckoos are just returning to make lots of cuckooing noises and the midges are still locked away in their underground vampire lairs for a few more weeks. So yes, get yourself up here as soon as you can, because as the old adage goes "It's fill yer boots time".
