A WILD JOURNEY. (22/12/14)

Yesterday was not one of the better days for driving the seventy five miles from Glencoe to Foyers. The rain was torrential and with the snow melt it meant most roads were an inch deep in water. We arrived safely and went a quick walk in the rain. A horrible day it was.

Today is much better but it is not photography weather.

_V0G7636         There is light but not much.

The forecast is looking much brighter so tomorrow I’m hoping to get some video of the falls. I’ll have an early night as for some reason I feel very lethargic.

  2. Glad you made it safely Adrian.
    Like wot Douglas said, we've got a strong gusting wind here....I've just spend the last 3 hours doing a Heath Robinson job trying to shore up my garden fence that was beginning to 'sway' (more than a little!) in the wind....thankfully it's not raining and is quite mild.....[:o{

    1. Trevor, it is pretty grim here. I hope the shoring was successful. There is little worse than a damaged fence.

  7. I hope the forecast comes true for you, Adrian. It's been very dark and windy in these parts, but mainly dry. Some brighter light would go down a treat!

    1. Richard, It has been pretty grim this past fortnight. I don't mind the cold but I would like to see the sun.

  12. Lethargic? What you need is a course of "Philosan" as it fortifies the over-forties in Foyers.

    1. Frances, it can look a whole lot better. There is plenty of snow on the mountains so I'll pop out later for some long exposure shots.

  14. David and his wife drove over from Kelso to Uig on Skye and then up to here on Saturday breaking the journey at Plockton on Saturday night. He was very fortunate and missed the worst of the weather.

    1. Graham Saturday was a good day, they picked the only good one for a week. The waterfall at the top of Glencoe was as good as I've ever seen it. It was far too wet for a photograph though.
