Loch Sunart Sunrise, Ardnamurchan

The Story Behind the Image - Loch Sunart Sunrise, Ardnamurchan

This is one of my favourite photos from almost 15 years of exploring Britain from top to bottom. I took this photo of sunrise over Loch Sunart from the Camas Torsa picnic area near the pretty village of Salen, at the south-eastern corner of the Ardnamurchan Peninsula.

I was staying for the week at a holiday cottage near Acharacle. I had driven along the shore of Loch Salen several times during my first few days in the area and decided that this would be a good place for a spot of sunrise photography. I had no idea just how true that thought would be!

I arose well before dawn and drove to Camas Torsa. I simply explored along the loch shore as the sun began to emerge. What came next was simply spectacular, as the morning sky turned vivid shades of orange and magenta. What an incredible experience and an incredible place.
