Loch Lomond is a beautiful loch, and I love to stop there on my way from Glasgow to Glencoe & the Isle of Skye, when I have a chance. Here a sunset on the Loch, a 1/5 second photograph taken in 2018 with my (then) Leica SL, Leica Vario-Elmarit-SL and Formatt-Hitech Firecrest Ultra filters:

Another beautiful shot Vieri.

Whenever I drive north passing Loch Lomond I get a strong feeling that I am heading home, not that I have ever found any Scots family heritage (yet!).

Very nice shot. I passed by Loch Lomond in the early 1980s going from Glasgow towards Isle of Skye on my tandem bicycle. Just took the time for a couple of quick snapshots on my Leica CL (film). We toured on our own for 10 days before catching our Braniff flight back to Texas. Braniff had stored my "tandem box" behind their ticket counter while we were there. I haven't been back to Scotland since. Too old for cycle touring now... but I do have Scots family heritage, and would love to go back.

Thank you very much indeed, Graham! :) I do share your feelings about driving past Loch Lomond - while I am very Italian, I always feel really at home when in Scotland - my wife keeps telling me that I am really a nordic in disguise!

      Feeling some pressure i had to go for some photos early this morning.....
      Buzzer at 4:30, a cup of coffee  (okay, double double espresso...),  eating while driving and going to the Harz mountains.  Arriving the parking area i was the only one there.... (hours later the road was blocked as there was no more free parking place when i returned). Armed with rucksack, tripod and headtorch i went up to the hills. 
      And here are the results.

      Missing being there, I dug out two oldies from my Leica SL days taken both in 2017 on the Isle of Skye. Both images taken with Leica SL< Voigtlander 15mm and Formatt-Hitech Firecrest filters.
      After a day of constant rain the skies opened, rewarding our perseverance with an amazing sunset at Elgol. 3 seconds exposure for this one:

      Today I took a trip out to continue my efforts to "recentre" my work away from street photography. At the moment it is difficult because I am having fairly severe problems walking, but this is one of the resulting images:
      "Walking in fields of gold" - Leica M240 + 24mm Elmarit-M f2.8 ASPH.
