If it Wasn’t for the Night-Shifts…


Travelling home a couple of weeks ago, I passed, as I always do on my commute – the utterly beautiful Castle Loch. It’s a sight I see hundreds if not thousands of times a year and one that I never tire of but, it is rare to be near it when its surface is quite as millpond-still as this. As the sun was only a couple of hours awake and still rather low in the sky, I wasn’t even sure as to whether I would get any decent IR frames and through the trees to my left, I did my best to spot the condition of the light before I decided to pull-in. I caught a glimpse through the foliage, decided it might work and, quickly checked my mirrors – nothing behind me; time for a sharp left and a swift look at the scene. It was worth it.

As a passing thought: given that one of my favourite coffee mugs is emblazoned with the all-too-accurate words, “I am Not a Morning Person!” –  I can only say that if I was left to my own devices on a lazy day-orff, I wouldn’t have managed to grab this early frame. I hope you’ll enjoy it!
