Wild Photography Holidays in Torridon

November 11th, 2014. Charlotte and I have just returned from leading Wild Photography Holiday‘s first tour to the Torridon region of Wester Ross. Arguably Scotland’s most diverse and fascinating mountain landscape, Torridon also encompasses deep sea lochs and old pine forests. While the weather was challenging for much of the time, we did get breaks when the light was sublime and remained productive throughout by light painting at dusk and retreating indoors to shoot in the field studio when it was just too wet and windy outside. Based in the rather fine Balgy Lodge, near Shieldaig, Charlotte looked after us all with an outstanding repertoire of fine food, three times a day, not to mention coffee breaks in between. Her greatest triumph may well have been a brownie topped with hazelnut pieces in a layer of caramel topped with Belgian chocolate. Our group was an outstandingly appreciative and nice one to work with so thank you Adrian, Phil, Alison, Tim, Mel and Catherine for putting in the hours and laughing a lot. We’ll be running a tour here again next year so just drop me a line for more info.
