8 days/7 nights Autumn Photo Tour

to the Scottish Highlands and the Isle of Skye  

 

Oblique incident sunlight covers the landscape of the Scottish Highlands with a golden glow and the vibrant colors of autumn. Sunlight sculpted mountains and valleys, fog banks on mirror-clear lakes at the crack of dawn, hidden waterfalls, dark Moors and old castle ruins let every photographer's heart beat faster.
Gone are the days of summer and a cold, almost frosty wind pushes the clouds across the sky.
Everyone who likes photographing landscapes knows that a good picture is often only then created when most of the tourists are gone.

 

We take you on a photo journey through the beautiful landscapes of Scotland and show you how you can capture the wonderful nature on your photos.
