Alex Glass

Thanks WM

I forgot I had these photos. I have just put all my photos on an external hard drive and getting them organised. I notice the sky when I opened up the file.

The Rowardennan war memorial.... a strange monument I find a tad creepy and sinister

Thats a veiw from Inversnaid Hotel looking over Loch Lomond to Loch Sloy dam
Stuball

I love the fact that Loch Slot sits somewhere way above Loch Lomond
sputnik

i love the song ...the valley of loch sloy,all about the building of the dam.written by leo coyle who worked on the dam.

minx..........that is beautiful.

Great pics. That memorial is odd indeed - more like something out of Stargate.

Loved the two HDR shots of the Loch - very nice.

And the one of the log on the water's edge is stunning.
Digitographer

LOL Oops, yes I did. I was at Loch Lomond in the summer (although it was freezing!) and none of my pics were as good as those posted. I'd have been happy to have taken any of those posted - very nice indeed. And I loved the low shooting angle of some of them.

Hi all



At first my wee grandson would not go near the cross. When i asked him what was wrong. He asked me is that's where Jesus is buried?

Keeping a straight face i explained no and anyway Jesus was good and would not hurt him.
After that he was happy to have this photo taken.

Used to go camping up that way.

Glendarroch Tearoom

Took this pic in October 1992 heading up the A82 at Luss



Then I spotted the Glendarroch Tearoom of parochial pish TV drama Take the Highroad fame. I suspect it was one of those places infested with pensioners 7 days a week discussing their haemorrhoids and the price of eggs.

Mrs Mack and the woman from the corner shop who is in River City  

What about that guy Snedden  He was a bit of a character


   
Fjord

It begs the question who or what was Inverdarroch? - was it animal, vegetable, mineral or all three?
Alex Glass

He was definitely animal who liked his minerals and grew his own vegetables

A gloomy one to start with.....



And a bit brighter......

Fastnet I don't mind gloomy photo's of Scotland because that is real Scottish weather, if we had to wait a for good sunny day the camera would never be out the bag.

I like gloomy as well Beano.........

I will need to look out some of my photos from a visit in July and post then up for you Beano.

Over looking the loch for almost a week I was fascinated by the constant change in the weather and took photos of most of the changes.

look foward to seeing them Alex,it's the weather that makes Scotland so lovely and colourful. When I go to Spain it's just blue sky with red soil not a patch on Scotland.

Alex that's a lovely set of photo's. I like the way the clouds change the landscape. (Did you stay in the Inverbeg hotel)        
Doog Doog

Aye,nice ones.
Alex Glass

We stayed at the Tarbet House B&B which is on the Cruich of Tarbet overlooking the loch.

Will post a photo of it at some point.

Darn chilly up at lomond shores yesterday - and very slippery - didn't enjoy carrying the camera about too much . . .

still, very handy having photo opportunity and shops so close together when persuading better half to go out


Beano

Crackin pics Namestain like reflection of the Maid on water  
Stuball

I was up there yesterday aswell....
namestain

pity we didn't get talking Stuball - you could have shown me how to capture the amazing views a bit better - I was quite disappointed with my images when I got back to base  
Stuball

I wouldnt worry about it, I never got anything special. The path up to the castle was un-walkable.

You did'nt see 3 guys with cameras walking gingerly?
namestain

Actually, I'm astonished we didn't recognise each other from our avatars

Don't beat yourself up,Namestain.

Those are good pics
