An Teallach by TobiasRichter An Teallach by TobiasRichter
Wester Ross, UK
Winter 2012

With the aim of shooting some Scottish Landscapes in dynamic weather I started my trip to Great Britain in mid-November and traveled for about 5 weeks trough the country. My journey took me from the south coast of England via Northumberland to Scotland. In Scotland I traveled from the Isle of Skye to Caithness, Torridon and Assynt. As expected the weather conditions were very contrary (snow, sun, storm, rain). The exposed position at the Atlantic Ocean is responsible for the unpredictable weather in western Scotland. Often it’s possible to experience several seasons within one day. Although it often wasn’t very easy to keep my camera dry, I was rewarded with a variety of spectacular sunrises and sunsets.

In early December winter comes to northern Scotland. Ice covered the countless lakes and the frequently showers turn into snowfall. In the last part of my UK series I show the shots from Wester Ross. The photos were taken during several hikes in the spectacular mountainous regions An Teallach and Torridon. I'll upload them here on DA during the next days. English descriptions and more shoots will follow soon!

An Teallach, one of my favourite mountains. It means the fireplace. On your visit, the fire was out!

Ja, ich hatte auch mal ein Bild hinter den Kulissen bei Facebook hochgeladen: [link] Leider war der Blick nur kurz und nur wenig frei. Eigentlich ist es noch spektakulärer (einfach mal An Teallach googln).

Das Foto kenn ich - sieht schon fast arktisch aus(Michelinmännchenstyle).
Das gute an den Lofoten war, dass es nachts selten unter -7°C ging. Für diese Breiten
und Jahreszeit fast schon mediterran.

Ja klingt echt nicht so kalt. Wie war es sonst so mit dem Schlafen/Essen/Duschen usw?

Nur die letzte Nacht, ein paar km weiter im Inland war etwas heftiger. Erst hatte es -17°C, dann sind wir Richtung Meer gefahren und dort hatte es dann nur noch -9°C.
Wir haben ausschließlich im Auto übernachtet - das war auch eigentlich sehr angenehm. Duschen war Mangelware, so dass wir uns nur zwei mal die Haare mit warmen Wasser (frisch von Tankstellenklo) gewaschen haben. Was das Essen betrifft, waren wir Selbstversorger und hatten zwei kleine Gaskocher mit bei. Allerdings haben die so Ihre Macken bei Minusgraden. Und so mussten wir auf ein lauwarmes Essen jeden Abend etwa 1 1/2 Stunden warten... Aber was macht man nicht alles für schöne Fotos. Und schließlich ist so eine "Selbstfindungsreise" etwas, dass die Seele frei macht und man nur jedem überforderten Büroangestellten empfehlen könnte :-). Ich glaube, du verstehst was ich meine Tobias.

Ja verstehe ich. Das Auto hatte keine Standheizung oder? und du solttest für den nächsten Trip mal über einen Benzinkocher nachdenken ;-)

Schöne Tonalitäten. Und du hast's klasse hinbekommen, dass die Details in der hinteren Bergkette trotz der größe noch sehr gut raus kommen. 1A
