Out On The Open Road - A82

Professional landscape photographers scout their location, either get up before dawn or stay around until sunset and walk for miles 'off the beaten track'  to get that all important shot.  I'm not a landscape photographer nor a hiker and it's usually a 'stop the car' exclamation from me in the passenger seat.  

All of my landscape work is done while going on my way somewhere else; and I'm always aware that there are other passengers who are waiting  patiently to reach their final destination.  I enjoy what I do and for me whether it's perfect or not isn't the issue - having fun with my camera is the important part. This photo to the left was taken through the car windscreen from the passenger side just as Beinn Dorain came into view. 

July is a great time to go exploring around the Scottish countryside as the wildflowers are at peak season and buttercups line most of the roadside verges.  It's even better when your choice of road - A82 in Argyll and Bute is listed as one of the top ten most scenic routes in the UK. So join with me over the next few weeks as I take you out on the open road  and see a little bit of Scotland through my eyes ...
