Scotland In Panoramas


This is a full-width version of the identical post on 21st July 2012.

The two-day bus tour to Scottish highlands was full of surprises. Standing in front of the breathtaking sceneries of the numerous glens and lochs, I was in awe. Although I tried to capture the amazing scenery in panoramic view, the pictures don’t do the real thing justice. I felt lucky being able to witness the awesome and beautiful views and would like very much to share them with you.

I. An Unidentified Loch — and the fifty shades of green trees

II. The Barren Mountainscape — and our fellow traveller in the foreground

III. Sky, water and land — and they become paradise

IV. Mountain Ranges

V. The South Side of Loch Ness — Nessie, where art thou?

VI. The North Side of Loch Ness — wait – is that the monster breaking the glassy water surface on the far left?

VII. The River Ness — in Inverness, with its castle on a hill

VIII. The Footbridge in Inverness — oh it was so beautiful that I don’t mind crossing it every day

IX. Houses in Inverness — and another footbridge on the right

X. On the footbridge — if my camera’s battery hasn’t run out I would have version of this during sunset

XI. The Urquhart Castle

Extras

Although I meant this to be a post dedicated to the Scottish landscape, I would like to share a few panoramas shot in London (no offense my dear Scots). What a festival it is these days, with the hype of the Olympic Games. Let’s wish the athletes a fair and great Games!

XII. A Suburban Park in Wandsworth — after our marvellous lunch in Chez Bruce

XIII. The Admiralty Arch — only noblemen can go through the middle gates, if you feel rebellious, you can try walking through them

XIV. The Trafalgar Square.
