Buachaille Etive Mòr, Glencoe

by David Gibbeson

Glencoe is one of my favourite places to go to in Scotland, with or without my camera. The entire length of the glen offers amazing scenery to absorb or capture in any weather, throughout the year. I didn’t spend as much time there during this visit to Scotland, opting to explore the quieter Glen Etive instead.

This is a photo of Buachaille Etive Mor. This iconic Scottish mountain is attractive from all angles. I like this image because the view of the pass up to towards the peak on the right adds another dimension to the often shot, perfect shape of the mountain. I opted to process this photo in black and white; and think monochrome really suits the mood of the day, simplifies the image, and I really like tones in this rendition.

The Glen Coe area is a particularly difficult area to shoot despite its beauty. It’s hard to not compare your images to others taken there, or for others to do the same. The important thing to remember, is that there are so many images of the place, because it is just that beautiful. Enjoy your images, and more importantly, the memories that go along with them.
