Companion forum thread to:Autumn in Cairngorms National Park, Scotland
Wow. That was a great photo essay. I love the way the colors were presented, light to dark. It is almost like your pictures worked their way through the day to the sun set (night fall). Great way to capture the imagination. Bravo!!!I am a visual learner. What can I say.More like this please. Maybe even Photo Essays that teach you to do some cool outdoor activity.Again, way cool.
Thanks for the fall color! We don't get much of that here in my neck of the woods, just 70 shades of green. Makes me want to go to Scotland again even more. Good job.
Chris,Wonderful photos and even better descriptive comments about what we are seeing (or not seeing, depending on how experienced we are) in the photos. I'm partway through your Backpacker's Handbook, and enjoy its almost lyrical tones.Tom
Chris,Thank you for your photo essay. Having had a forestry education many years ago, it was especially interesting to read your tree and plant identification...it made your beautiful photos much more meaningful.
Thanks Chris. I went through part of the Caringorms in August, though not on foot. I was told this summer was one of the coldest and wettest in years. I found the trip across the North Sea to the Orkneys also quite cold. How did you find the weather and what equipment and clothing did you bring to prep for the trip?
Thanks for all your comments. I appreciate them.Norman, the Cairngorms are my local hills so I test a wide variety of gear here. In general gear needs to be wind and waterproof. Last summer was exceptionally wet and windy, making it a good time for testing rain clothing and tents.
