Beinn Alligin & Loch Torridon

The Story Behind the Image - Beinn Alligin and Loch Torridon

One of the most enjoyable photography excursion of my life was a week I spent exploring the Torridon area from a base at a holiday cottage near Torridon village.

One day I was driving south along the road to Shieldaig when I spotted a layby on the side of the road that seemed to offer a good view across Loch Torridon to the peak of Beinn Alligin on the far bank.

I filed away the location in my mental list of 'places to come back to when the light is in the right place'. And so it proved, for a few days later I was driving north to Torridon in the early evening with golden light streaming over the loch.

I stopped at the viewpoint and walked along the hillside until I came to the striking rock in the foreground, lit by sunlight. I love the contrast of the small rock and the distant mountain, plus the gorgeous autumn colours.
