Tim's One Photograph a Day

Loch Lubnaig in the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park.

Loch Lubnaig: Scottish Highlands Beauty.

Scottish Highlands Beauty.

We have moved from the city of Edinburgh to a small village called Acharacle. On the way, we passed through the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. Loch Lubnaig was on our route.

Even though it was dull and overcast, this is a stunning location. The view across the loch to the surrounding highlands is quite enhanced by the heavy cloud cover.

I have got low down to the water level. This makes more of a feature of the water in the foreground, without losing the impact of the mountains behind.

The rock in the foreground of Loch Lubnaig creates a focal interest in the foreground. I have placed it towards the right in the image to give a good lead-in to the rest of the photograph.

A small aperture gives a good depth of field. Important when you are wanting something that close to the lens to be in focus as well as the rest of the shot.

Loch Lubnaig is a small freshwater loch in the former Perthshire Council area.
