“I am not over-keen on early rises these days; in my final job , I had frequent early morning flights which soured me. However, landscape photography, especially in these days of glorious, autumn colours, require that the early light should be sought. I was on the road to the Trossachs shortly after 6.00am for these shots. They are all taken around Loch Ard and the much smaller Loch Ruskie.”
