Scotland – Still Waters from the Train

I couldn’t believe my luck when I realised I’d got the shot below because at the time I was travelling on the steam train that I gave you a glimpse of here .

I was in the corridor at the end of the carriage with window open when I spotted the boats and had to wait a few seconds to try to time it so that the boats were in the reflected line of the mountains..

It seemed like a long few seconds but somehow I managed to time it right. This was my one and only shot. Not only that but I have never taken a wide-angle reflection shot like this before, on or off a fast-moving train!

I always think this kind of shot needs to be viewed when you are somewhat moved back from the screen.

If you’d like to you can read my other blog 1500 Saturdays here  where I write about what I’m thinking, talking about, photographing or doing on all the Saturdays I hope I’ll have left!

    • Thanks Louis.. This was pretty much the one and only time a saw a really still loch during the week I was there. Always seemed to be enough breeze ( and sometimes wind!) to ripple the water.
