I have been creating photos during rainy days as part of a project, and this composition of a viaduct surrounded by the Scottish mountains works well. I was driving along the A82 in the Scotland looking for scenes to capture in the rain, when I saw this viaduct in the distance come into view. I instantly knew that this was a scene I needed to capture. I love how the viaduct is partially obscured by the torrential rain, and how it is framed by the mountains. The mountains in view are Beinn Dorain, Beinn Nam Fuaran, Beinn a’ Chaisteil and Beinn Odhar.
Anyone who is familiar with Scotland knows that the A82 is a busy road, especially in the summer. This meant that I had to find a lay by to stop in as it wasn’t safe to stop at the road side. Luckily there was one close by so I pulled in and found a good composition just along from where I stopped that fitted with what I envisioned. I must have looked a sight to passers-by, stood in torrential rain crouched under my golf umbrella with my Canon EOS 5D Mark 3 on my tripod taking pictures while my family waited in the car.
