Project in the Campsies
The above image is of the Campsie Glen waterfall which can be found at the end of a short path down from the viewpoint car park on the Crow Road, and is well worth a visit. Especially when it's as full as it was on this occasion!
This month started with the tail end of the snow fall that arrived in January. This view is of the Campsie hills and Dumgoyne as seen from Queensview in the Kilpatrick Hills. As the sun went down below the hills behind me, it spilled it's last light onto the side of the hills and the brooding clouds above.
In this scene taken near Queens View in South Stirlingshire, Ben Lomond can be seen on the West shore of Loch Lomond. The sun is setting to the West, just about to dip down below "The Whangie". The big white clouds are reflecting the snow on the ground making them stand out against the blue of the sky creating a striking, punchy picture.
The village of Killearn lay to the North of my viewpoint. As the sun went down the cloud began to close in and one last ray of light broke through to light up the village leaving the looming mountains beyond in darkness.
From the hills on the opposite side of the crow road from the Campsie Glen waterfall, I was able to make this image of Lennoxtown as the sun goes down behind me. Just as I got my camera in place this towering cloud formation formed about the town providing the final element for my photo.
