Loch Ardinning is a small nature reserve situated just 2.5 miles from Milngavie, Glasgow. The reserve sits below the magnificent Campsie Fells on the edge of the Loch Lomond National park and is managed by The Scottish Wildlife Trust. I was introduced to the reserve by a good friend and promised myself that I would return with my camera to have a go at photographing the autumn colours.
Here are the results so far but I'll add more as October progresses.
Above: I was full of hope as the mist rose from the loch before sunrise.
Above: My hopes for a bright start to the day were fading fast as clouds gathered from the west.
Above: Beauty and the beast. Peace and pylons.
It pays to be patient. I'd almost given up hope of some good light and was ready to walk away when the clouds started to break.
Above: Autumn colours and reflections. Happy days.
Above: I walked away from this image with a Deacon Blue song in my head. Ten points to the first person to leave a comment with the correct song title.
