Cairngorms is a stunning setting in Autumn, as it provides an abundance of hillsides of birch, oak, beech and rowan trees captivating an explosion of light and colour. It is no surprise that photographers love the autumnal setting which offers a wonderfully warm colour pallet for the camera.The rugged beauty of Cairngorms offers the perfect opportunity to capture the vibrant autumnal colours of the trees reflected in the lochs and rivers running through the hillsides and experiment with some different techniques.
The changeable Scottish weather means that light can change rapidly and a sudden drop in the quality of light offers the opportunity to use some ICM or multiple exposures. This gives photographers the chance to experiment and enjoy new techniques they wouldn't normally use. By moving the camera and combining exposures, mistakes can lead to a pleasant surprise.
