West of Scotland Vistas

The last period of snow here in Scotland (about 2 weeks ago) saw me head up to the Glenburn Reservoir to try and get some countryside shots. I did get some winter shots (the tree on my Instagram feed as an example) but the most impressive shots were telephoto shots of over and across the Clyde Valley.

Mile End Mill (Landscape); Gleniffer Braes with Mile End Mill in the foreground, looking North East, 12 February 2021, F/4.0, 1/1600s, ISO 100, 200mm

The Start of the Highlands; Gleniffer Braes looking North West with Johnstone High Flats in the foreground, 12 February 2021, F/9.0, 1/320s, ISO 200, 200mm

I took other pictures i may share later. However, when i was heading home i took one other picture which stands out. The quirk of the telephoto is that it compresses things and the Kilpartick Hills do not look that far away and loom a lot more than you think they do. That or it was a very clear day which made the Kilpatrick Hills look closer than the other side of the Clyde Valley.

The Looming Hills; Braehead Road, 12 February 2021, F/4.0o, 1/400s, ISO100, 94.00mm
