This photograph is from a trip to the Trossachs area of Stirlingshire in early October; in hindsight my timing was a bit early for capturing the anticipated autumn colours. Nor was there the slightest hint of mist lying over the loch, despite me arriving at around sunrise. But having travelled for more than an hour to get to the scene I was determined to bring something home at least, so I’m very happy with this finished image. The autumn colours are a bit subdued however the wonderful sky and its reflection on the still water of Loch Chon more than make up for other disappointments.
As recorded in the data below, I decided upon a horizontal stitched panorama using my wonderful Nikon 45mm Tilt + Shift lens; this produced what we would accept to as normal perspective in a wide format but without resorting to the use of a wide-angle lens and the associated perspective distortion of such a lens.
