Happening Now: Planning for a Photo Retreat in Ireland and Scotland

Scotland’s Loch Lomond

I took an exploratory trip to Scotland in 2023 with an eye toward presenting photography retreats there next year.  The towns of Balloch and Arrochar are gateways into the sublime landscape at Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park.  A local resident observed that I was visiting the country at the “worst” possible time – in the dreary month of November.  But I found the “bad” weather painted the landscape in dramatic skies, mysterious atmospherics, cool and warm tones, and organic textures that worked in both color as well as black-and-white.
