On the Embankment of the River Coe

A photograph of the RIver Coe in Glencoe in Scotland processed with a Powder Paint Effect

This image was photographed in July 2016.  At a location near Glencoe where you could access the River Coe. Taken during our summer holiday of touring Scotland. 

What I love about this photograph is the way the embankment is so green and luscious. I like the soft moss like feeling to the ground and who it enhances every nook and cranny in the ground.

Scotland is a beautiful place to visit; but take a raincoat.  You are sure to get rain at some point or another!  It rained every day and night during our holiday.  But even the most horrid of wet weather didn’t dampen our spirits.  Got us wet a few times, though!

The River Coe is fast flowing and flows into Loch Leven, which we saw from our caravan window.  Looking down the loch you saw Ballachulish Bridge and the spectacular mountains that engulf the loch.

The further you go up the river the more beautiful the scenery gets and the river becomes quite torrential in certain parts and very free-flowing with strong currents. However, there are some spectacular locations to photograph mountains, water cascades and breath-taking landscapes.

It doesn’t take a lot to imagine this wonderful landscapes scenery covered with a blanket of snow.  And as you drive along the roads, there are poles marking the depth of the snow and the roadway.

There are barriers along the main road.  Used in heavy snow to stop drivers getting using the roads in heavy snow. With Glencoe’s wonderful mountains and ski resort easily on hand, I would love to return to this area in the winter time when snow blankets the ground.

We both have a desire to travel and hopefully one day move to somewhere where it is picturesque and a photographer's delight.



Beautiful place! Love the way the powder paint effect gives the river landscape a mystical feel.
