I visited Stirling on Sunday for the SPF Digital Championship. I'm looking to get into judging for Camera Clubs and was advised that this would be a good opportunity to take in a lot of images and see on the spot what the judges were scoring. It certainly served its purpose and there was some great images on show with the natural history shots being favoured by the judges.
I rarely travel any distance without planning some photography time but a clear sky meant I decided against a sunrise and instead visited a spot I had tried last year. Raploch on the River Forth was the venue and I hoped the Autumn colours had clung on after all the wind of the last week or two. After a precarious climb down the very muddy river bank I reached a likely looking spot and chose the 70-200mm for a more compressed view of the landscape. The light was nice and there was enough colour hanging on to make a decent shot or two.
I went to another haunt at South Alloa on the way home. the light wasn't kind and I'll have to wait a little longer to get the shot out of this venue that I have in my head.
