    Default Trip to Loch Lomond ( PIC HEAVY )

    I recently went on a 6 day trip to Loch Lomond with Andywink and pjmcbear, I thoroughly enjoyed it , weather wasn't great midges were bad up north but wow what a place , Just wanted to share a few of the pictures i took , and Thanks to Andy for Paying for the fuel for the full trip.

    Andy looking like he should have been in the film Deliverance lol



    I like this one sums up the trip for me


    Nice view as the sun went down at one of the camps


    Paul catching some zzzzz

    And pulling a perch out of the loch with a spinner

    looks good - except for 1 or 2 scary sights

    Must start saving for a new boat

    Nice one. I was hoping to bump into Paul at the Moot, I even took the Tramp Camping book to return as I was sure he was going. It is back here again until our next meeting. Loch Lomond looks fine, apart from the midgies!

    Less of the old, Steptoe!

    A fantastic trip and many great memories, including the eagles circling high above us at the north end, the osprey snatching at the water a few metres in front of me, Andy on his island with the lone bush and taking a swim in the Loch, that was cold .

    Sounds like you all had a hoot.

    Cracking photos Singeblister.
    A wee tip for canoe photography is that you can rotate full-res pics to fix the horizon in image editing software. You have to then crop the picture a bit but....
    ....hang on, the wonkiest horizon is taken from land. Ho, hum, the process is good for whisky-induced wonkyness too.
