Loch Lomond from Conic Hill


Today I took an afternoon walk up Conic Hill from Balmaha. The forecast was for a sunny clear (but cold) day. I took my 7D and my Sigma 10-20mm lens up with me and my very useful Giottos carbon tripod. My timing was just about right as I made the top with about 10 minutes till sunset. I also had my seldom used set of grad filters so this gave me time to assemble tripod and filters and engage “mirror lockup”, almost like a real landscape guy!


I also managed to get a shot with a lovely family giving some people interest, but I didn’t ask permission to post it, so I missed that chance!

I would like to tell what the grad filter was that I used, but if I’m honest it was pretty cold and so I just tried them with a trial and error approach. There was one on, but who knows; I’ll try harder next time!
