Glencoe

The Glencoe valley lies on the North West coast of Scotland around 90 miles north of Glasgow. It is about 10 miles long and runs east to west just south of Loch Leven. From the A82, which runs through the valley, you have spectacular view of the mountains, rivers and lochs.

Glencoe is the remains of an ancient super volcano and is considered to be one of the best examples of subsidence calderas. The eruption happened about 420 million years ago during the Silurian period, though the volcano has long since become extinct. The landscape was further shaped by the glaciation during the last ice age around 10,000 years ago.

Here are a few of my photographs of this region. I do hope they inspire you to visit the area and take similar photographs of your own.
