Glencoe and Surroundings Winter Landscape Photography Tour

Glencoe and Surroundings Winter Landscape Photography Tour | 14 - 18 January 2019. A five day photography tour of the stunning landscape of Glencoe as well as the surrounding area.

Join me for a fabulous tour of Glencoe in Scotland during the Winter of 2019. The tour is centred in the very heart of Glencoe where our base is in the village of Ballachulish. We will use our base to photograph the stunning mountain scenery of Glencoe as well as the surrounding Scottish Highlands landscape and lochs.

During the month of January, the area around Glencoe can be transformed into a winter wonderland with snow on the high peaks and, with some luck will, on the ground around Rannoch Moor also.

Our stay is based in the village of Ballachulish on the banks of Loch Leven. Double rooms are provided with breakfast and a 3 course dinner.

Highlights of the tour, other than the endless mountainous scenery, will be Rannoch Moor, Buchaille Etive Mor, Lochan na h-Achlaise and the Black Mount, as well as places such as Castle Stalker and possibly up to the Fort William area.

Additional information

Where do I meet you?
We will all meet at the Ballachulish Hotel at 10:00 on the 14th January 2018.

Is it cold in Glencoe in January?
In January temperatures can reach well below freezing and especially so on Rannoch Moor. You will need to ensure that you have clothing that will keep you warm from the inevitable cold and wind chill that we will be experiencing during our days out.

What clothing should I bring?
Make sure you bring good quality footwear as well as warm socks. Wind chill is likely to be a factor. As we will be standing around waiting for the most opportune light, you will need to make sure you have the appropriate clothing such as a down jacket. Don't forget the all important base and mid layers also. A good pair of trousers to ensure that your legs are kept warm is a necessity. Lastly, make sure a good quality hat and gloves are part of your wardrobe.

Good, sturdy walking shoes that are waterproof are perfect for the terrain that we'll be working in. Places such as Rannoch Moor can be wet underfoot and so making sure your feet are protected is one of your first priorities.

What camera kit should I bring?
A wide angle lens (16-35mm) and medium zoom (24-70mm) are the lenses we'll be using the most. A longer zoom (70-300) will be useful to cover most compositional eventualities that we may need to isolate. It's likely that the most used lens will be in the 24-70mm range as a super wide angle can create the pancake effect on the mountainous landscape, so make sure this focal length is covered.

Do I need a computer?
Although not essential, it's a great idea to bring a laptop computer with you so you can discuss imagery with myself.

What computer support do you offer?
I try and make a point of helping those that need it in digital photography. If inclement weather or tiredness takes hold, it can really help to have a computer session to assess our progress.
