In Scotland, the word “loch” is used to describe any large, enclosed expanse of water, including areas coming in from the sea (equivalent to the Norwegian “fjiords”). The word comes from Gaelic (as does “lochan” meaning a small lake or pool).
Living in Scotland, I am lucky to have the beautiful lochs on my doorstep. However; having reviewed a number of my images I am starting to realise that it is the Autumn and Misty days that draw me back to them again and again.
I am also very lucky that my wife is a very, very, keen wild water swimmer which means that I occasionally turn up at some obscure lochs in the early hours of the day. I see this gallery growing and growing, more importantly I see the images being refined and removed on a regular basis. If you have the time take a wee while to enjoy the lochs.
