Winter In Glencoe
A little explored area with vast skies, a stunning coastline with spectacular views towards Inner Isles and gnarled ancient oak woodlands, there is a wonderful variety of locations to both tempt and excite you.
Ardnamurchan is probably the most remote of the West Highland Peninsulas and is home to the most westerly point on the British mainland. It is a landscape formed by volcanic activity and the geology is regarded as internationally important. Perhaps because of its remoteness it remains a beautiful and peaceful landscape featuring ancient oak woodlands, lochs and beaches.
During this workshop we will explore the coast and woodland extensively, allowing time to take in both the spectacular views towards the inner isles and the more secluded bays with fascinating intertidal areas. We will visit the ancient woodlands that flank Loch Sunart and take in lochs with their attendant castles too. The low sun at this time of year along with shorter days means the conditions are often spectacular with transient, soft light.
There are only a few ways onto the peninsula, via the Corran Ferry crossing Loch Linnhe at the base of Glencoe, to the north at Glenfinnan and at Lochailort on the road to Mallaig. There are two huge glacial-cut lochs, Loch Shiel and Loch Sunart, nestled in the landscape and each are surrounded by a rich and diverse variety of woodlands. Beaches have beautiful names like the Singing Sands and Samalaman Bay that boast white sands that look out over the Inner Isles of Eigg, Rum and Muck to the southern tip of the Isle of Skye.
One of the aims of this workshop is to allow time to delve deeper into this amazing peninsula, its wonderful landscape and what it means to you. We will actively encourage creativity and give freedom for you to take your time to develop your own unique images from this special landscape, including time for image review to make sure you get the best from your time in Ardnamurchan.
This area of Scotland is often overlooked as people head for Malliag en-route further west to the islands or head north up the Great Glen. If you want to photograph a staggering landscape that few have seen with all the grandeur of the far western highlands, then Ardnamurchan is a must.
For this workshop you will be in the capable hands of your leaders who know both the area and landscape photography very well. They will be available to provide plenty of hands-on 1−2−1 tuition to help you get the most from this photographers’ paradise.
