I’ve finally had time to compile the images from our recent trip to the UK’s beautiful Lake District and stunning and rugged south-east Scotland and have added them to my website at: http://www1.clikpic.com/paulcoghlin/gallery_367578.html Although the weather for those areas can often be wet, we did had some periods of warm sunshine and when the dark clouds did close-in, they just added to the dramatic landscape.
Staying in local B&Bs worked out well, with generous breakfasts every day, and then plenty of excercise from semi-marching up mountains. Carrying two heavy cameras, associated gear and a large tripod up and down steep slopes and rough terrain certainly worked muscles I didn’t know I had! But it was worth it and the views, as anyone who’s ever visited these locations will say, were spectacular. And I’m sure we’ll visit again at some point.
