The rain had been consistent for most of the day but had lightened. It was still really cloudy out but I headed out with my son to look for a viewpoint just in case the cloud broke for sunset. The weather wasn’t looking promising at all so we photographed some trees near Ben Cruachan, on the shore of Loch Awe.
I thought it was worth heading towards Oban to scout out potential images and we headed west we caught the tiniest glimmer of light just on the visible horizon. I knew that the shore of Loch Etive was where I wanted to be to get a good composition of the water with a backdrop of mountains so rushed towards Oban. I spotted this location in Connel that looked ideal. The yacht in the bay looked perfect for the scene and the light was magical. It was as if someone had magically opened a zip along the cloud in the perfect spot to reveal the sky at just the right time. We shot right through the blue hour until the sky had finished its colour show for the night. This is one of the images that I captured. I love how the clouds are still hitting the mountains across the Ardmucknish Bay, and how the clouds were almost parallel with the horizon.
