Another morning shot to catch the remaining mist which was lingering on the east shore of Loch Lomond. As you can see in the image below, the little clump of trees were shedding the last of their autumn colours and the mist surrounding them helped the trees really stand out in this minimulistic shot. The 25 second exposure I used also helped to smooth out any ripples and movement in the water, and just in time too, as the mist soon lifted revealing the landscape behind the trees which of course transformed the scene from this lovely, simple and uncluttered view into the complete opposite. Three other shots from the Loch Lomond mist morning shoot are also shown below as thumbnails.

Oran Mor – Glasgow
An early morning rise to capture the morning twilight glow of Oran Mor arts and entertainment venue on Byres Road, Glasgow. I was lucky enough to get the shot from Great Western Road with what looks like an empty street but in fact the traffic was coming in spurts and I just timed it right with the 25 second exposure before more traffic arrived. As you can see in the image there had been a lot of rain that night which left a puddle on the side of the road, I of course took advantage of that and got my Manfrotto 055XPROB tripod down at a low angle to capture the reflection. Having a Hoya low profile polarising filter on my Canon 17-40mm f4.0 L lens helped bring out the reflection nicely, too. You can also see the crescent Moon to the right of the Oran Mor building which was another bonus.
