Back again chaps with more pics. This first batch were taken a couple of weeks ago on a very wet day at the bottom of Craigellachie. Not far in, I came across a tree that had bizzarely snapped right at the base.
Moving swiftly along since it was really pissing it down, I came to the mysterious ‘Bottomless Loch’ and scared off a heron, but never got a good shot of it.
I did however find approximately 6 billion freshly hatched frogs stumbling along the path. Seriously, they couldn’t move properly yet, so I managed to get in real close.
Moving around the loch I stopped to get the shots below and also found the main batch of spawn.
It’d been very windy recently and branches getting ripped off in the forest is normal. Having nearly half of a tree torn apart however was not exactly expected.
And moving closer to the road, there’s nothing quite like some horrible strewn garbage to get your enviro-rage up.
Fast forward to this Monday and I took a hike up to Tullochgrue, a place where you can get some great shots of the Cairngorms, but also one which is suffering from a squawking plague of horny pheasants.
One of ye olde abandoned farmhouses that I didn’t venture into due to my olde unabandoned fear of lockjaw and horny pheasants.
And finally a couple of landscape style pics.
