Sunrise over Loch Sunart, Scottish Highlands

The Story Behind the Image - Sunrise over Loch Sunart

This is one of a series of photos I took of an amazing sunrise over Loch Sunart near Salen, in the south-eastern corner of the Ardnamurchan Peninsula.

I was staying for a wonderful week near Acharacle and decided to try photographing the sunrise from the Camas Torsa picnic area just west of Salen.

I got up well before dawn and, fortified with strong black coffee, drove to the shore of the loch to arrive just before sunrise.

As I explored the shoreline the sun rose over the horizon and painted the sky amazing colours of orange and red. What an unforgettable sight!

This is the view from Camas Torsa looking east along Loch Sunart in the direction of Strontian.
