The weather in Scotland is atmospheric. It’s often said that the weather here is more changeable than anywhere else in the world. And that’s a good thing for landscape photographers! A bright, sunny blue sky day just isn’t what you need to capture great images of Scotland’s moody landscapes. Don’t misunderstand me. I like a nice sunny day as much as anyone, but photographically speaking, they just don’t work!

The best landscape images are often taken on days when the weather is just a little bit wild. Days when the clouds are racing across the sky and the light is constantly changing. That’s when Scotland’s landscape really comes alive!

Just the other day, I was out in Glencoe taking someone on a photography workshop, and it was cold and sunny, just the sort of weather for getting out and about in Scotland’s beautiful landscape; but it was just too good! Even though the landscape was stunning, the light was just too harsh.

Having said that, I spent a little more time in places that I had previously overlooked; and I’ll definitely be going back there, but perhaps when the weather is a little more inclement!

So next time you’re planning a trip to Scotland, make sure to keep an eye on the weather forecast. And don’t be afraid to get out there and shoot in less than perfect conditions! After all, that’s when you’ll get your best photos.

Thanks for reading! Until next time, happy shooting!
