THE STORY BEHIND THE PHOTOGRAPH

David RossI didn't know much about Quinag before I came to Sutherland. . I certainly didn't know how to pronounce it (very roughly 'coon yag'). But as soon as I drove past this scene I knew I had to photograph it. Over the course of the next week I must have tried about 5 times to photograph the mountain. I visualised a stunning sunrise, and carefully planned when to arrive and where to find the best vantage point. But like Robbie Burns might have said, the best laid plans of mice, men, and photographers 'Gang aft agley'. The morning was dull, unpromising, with dark clouds where I had hoped for clear skies. But if there's one thing I've learned while photographing landscapes, its to let go of my preconceptions and actually 'see' what is in front of my eyes. The dark clouds and the bulk of Quinag made for a striking composition that I hope helps convey the ever-changeable nature of the Highlands landscape.This view with the dark, stormy cloud hovering, while a shaft of lonely sunlight hits the rocks in the stream, is just as beautiful in its own way as the 'prettier' scene I had in mind!David Ross Photography signature
