With all this beauty ... (and your ability to capture all that beauty ... without making it look hard ... as if I am there with you...), why was there a need to create Scotch Whiskey?

I hope our English friends will not take that personally
You are out there. You and your camera. You can shoot or not shoot as you please. Discover the world, Your world. Show it to us. Or we might never see it.

A beautiful series from a beautiful part of the world! I really like the afternoon colours in the Day 2 images, especially in #6 and #8. The Autumn light is stunning.

Looking forward to seeing Scotland in late Spring!

Well I don't, with a gentle smile!

I think Scotland has to be a very tough place to live, harsh winters and short summers.  Whisky must have eased the pain at times, especially in the ancient past.

David has opened my eyes and as a result I have explored far more of his beautiful country.  Thank you David.  Not done yet.

Sincere thanks to everyone, or their (frequently too flattering) comments. I like spreading the word about Scotland's beautiful landscapes and when friends like Mike and Robert are converts to the cause, I feel I have done my job successfully.

Not at all, we are delighted that our Scottish neighbours work so hard to make whisky for us to enjoy.

The trip only lasted three days and we returned home via LochNess and Glencoe - old favourites.

1,2 and 4. Trees along Loch Ness-side.
3. Moorings at Fort Augustus.
5. Loch Lochy, the Great Glen
6. Sgurr na Ciche, Glencoe
7 and 8. Sunset over Buachaille Etive Mor, Glencoe
9. The Ballachulish Bridge seen from Glencoe
10. Sgurr nam Fiannadh, Glencoe

Dave, I'm sure you are fed up with any more praise, but I would have to say that the last set is just superb.  I cannot pick up any one favorite!

No, Akira, never tired of praise from my peers! And when I don't get the praise I know I have over-valued the image or images. There are always lessons to be learned.

In a previous post you mentioned you could not find my friend David Anthony's images online, and you are right; it is rather strange. There are at least three other professional photographers called David Anthony, which is part of the problem. Also David retired from the world of fashion nearly 15 years ago and may have allowed his web presence to just fade away. But it is rather strange - I'll do a little more digging.

Another set of fine photos.
I am looking forward to visit Scotland, and perhaps learn just a tiny bit from the Master :)
